Like most things in 2020, Christmas will be quite different this year, but SoGlos’s elves have worked hard to discover exactly where Santa Claus will be in Gloucestershire for those magical family moments, that we will all treasure a little bit more this December.
While we haven’t been able to quite find 29 magical places to meet Santa in Gloucestershire, we are continuously updating this hot list with as many places for children to deliver their Christmas lists and meet the jolly man himself. Ho, ho, ho!
Stagecoach West is one of the leading bus companies operating in Gloucestershire. With fantastic facilities like onboard WiFi on most buses and contactless payment available, Stagecoach West offers a great way to explore Gloucestershire.
Perfect for the festive season, Stagecoach West will be running two park and ride services this Christmas, as well as the 94 service between Gloucester and Cheltenham, which runs all night, six days a week.
