We have just had our son's 15th birthday party on the boat. We are extremely pleased with how accommodating Sarah and her team were and we can't reccomend them highly enough. We went from Cowley lock, to Uxbridge then back again, and finished by going through the lock. Sarah took time to show my son how the boat is operated, which he loved. We brought our own food and drink on board, and we were supplied with hot drink facilities, which we weren't expecting. Thankyou Sarah and the team, for giving my son and our family a great experience to remember.

Arthur, the staff and the route were amazing. We took our own little picnic and were treated to a very relaxing trip along through the Colne Valley with some history and wildlife. Awesome day, awesome experience.

We happened across The Arthur by chance when walking along the canal & thought it would make for a nice treat during the summer holidays. We booked for 4 children aged from 3 to 12 years & 7 adults for a 2 hour trip. Sarah & Josie were happy to pick us up from outside our house which backs onto the canal (& drop us at the pub of our choice for lunch) Sarah pointed out many things of interest & the children loved feeding the swans,coots, moorhens & ducks, many of which were chicks. It was all very tranquil & we all thoroughly enjoyed it & it was great value for money. We will definitely be using this again.

We had a fab trip along the Grand Union Canal. Peaceful, beautiful and totally relaxing for a family day out. We took three children under 5 yrs old and a dog! Sarah and Peter couldn’t have done any more to make us all feel welcome!
Toilet and small kitchen on board and comfy seating. Very good value, would love to go again.

What a great way to spend the afternoon of New Year's Eve. We were a group of 8 ranging in ages from 5 to mid 50's, including some visitors from South Africa + a dog. Sarah was a lovely host/skipper and made sure we all had a good time and the 2 and a half hour trip flew by. PJ who operated the locks kept everyone entertained with stories about the canal and information on the wildlife. The kids enjoyed steering the boat. The dog loved watching everything go by. We took along a picnic and everyone enjoyed a relaxing afternoon. Who knew a whole different world exists a few minutes from the centre of Uxbridge. We will definitely book this trip again at different times through the year.

I can highly recommend this company for a personalised boat trip. Sarah was a pleasure to deal with and made a birthday outing for my brother a memorable day. We got on the boat to find Happy Birthday banners up and plates of chocolate biscuits and fresh strawberries on the tables. They arrived on time and were easy to deal with on the phone. We had ordered fish and chips via Sarah and also took a picnic of drinks and snacks. A lovely afternoon!

From the warm welcome and the brief but comprehensive safety talk, to the moment we disembarked we able to relax and enjoy ourselves in safe and professional hands.

I am struggling to find the words to express how much we enjoyed every moment.
We booked at very short notice, every so Lindsey made every effort possible to meet our needs, we espepechially appreciated our dogs being welcome on board.

What really made the trip so very spechial was PJ's knowledge and infectious love of the waterways and local wildlife, his uniquely warm and engaging style made it a truly memorable experience.

We were lucky with the weather and I personally loved sitting outside and seeing the wildlife, however I am sure that even a wet and windy day would not detract from the experience as Arthur is charming and very comfortable, with every facility anyone could ask for. It makes this experience one for everyone, all ages and abilities, rain or shine I look forward to the next trip.

Really lovely to meet Sarah after booking Arthur for my parents 50th Wedding anniversary. There were 8 of us ranging in ages from 14 to 70 and everyone loved the day. We were allowed to decorate the boat with balloons & bunting, took a lovely picnic and champagne and had music playing in the background. PJ & Sarah were an excellent team working together and telling us all sorts of facts and funny stories along the way. I would recommend this to everyone as very good value for money and such a relaxing day out.
