“A lovely afternoon on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

What a lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon! We saw the canal cruises advertised on a local attractions web-site and thought it might be worth a look. We crusied on the electric boat so no noise except the ducks and birds along the canal. The staff were lovely and friendly and gave a commentary explaining the history of the canal and highlighting points of interest along the way. On our cruise the bar was open and you could buy tea, coffee, soft and alcoholic drinks along with some snacks. I understand they also do themed trips serving cream teas but sadly not on the day we went. Great way to spend a couple of hours and excellent value for money.

“Excellent value and lovely way to spend an afternoon/evening!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Really friendly staff make these canal cruises a must do. There are various options, including a one and a half hour trip with no food, an afternoon tea cruise, Cream Tea Cruise, Fish and Chip Supper and Evening Dinner. There are also Halloween and Santa themed ones.
The afternoon tea one we did was excellent value - loads of tea/coffee, five types of cake, plus sandwiches too.
The Fish and Chip supper is also excellent. Can't wait to book to see Santa now!
Highly recommended.
