Coots Café Bar
Next to the museum, Coots Café Bar offers drinks and light snacks, and comfortable surroundings to settle in and swop stories about your visit or boat trip. There's a licensed bar and plenty of outside seating for sunny days.
The museum shop is a treasure trove that changes regularily with the seasons. From pocket money treats and old fashioned sweets to painted canalware and original prints, there are presents and mementos for all ages and pockets. There's also an excellent selection of canal books, guides and maps.
Plan, rest and picnic
On the ground floor, next to the shop are a number of tables and chairs for museum visitors to use. They are ideal for resting and catching your breath, planning your next steps or as a wet weather picnic option.
