We had a lovely stroll through the Roman Gardens down to the river and right along – great views from the bridges. Boat trip was reasonably priced and very enjoyable, as was the peaceful hour or so we spent sat at the riverside watching the world go by.

We took the first trip of the day and were the only passengers! Interesting to see the boat houses and original large houses on both sides of the river. Would have liked longer trip but out of season.

Had a lovely 1/2 hour on the boat. Commentary quite interesting. Tranquil way to spend some time. Reasonable cost which you can link to the city bus tour too.

The river is very pretty in the city centre stretch, there are boats for hire, rowing and motor. If you do hire a boat out, please pay attention to warnings as there are weirs that can be very dangerous. There's nothing quite like sitting by the river and watching the world go by.

Although it was good to look out at the river from our window the River didn't look clean, we went on a boat trip and there seemed to be a lot of debrie floating about and not much wildlife on the river which in my mind was proof that the river was dirty and not clear like most Rivers we've...

We went along the Dee at from the walls and the river at the weir and along past the boats was quite dirty and full of rubbish. We don't remember it being like this before. We went along past the restaurants and stopped for some tea but the experience was spoiled as the outlook to the water was not so... More

A pleasant half hour spent on the water and enjoying the lovely properties on the banks of the river. Good fun and reasonably priced.
