These are ‘turn up & ride’ events.  Our trip boat ‘The Three Shires’ seats 10 people.  If we cannot accommodate you on your chosen trip – we will endeavor to seat you on a later trip.  At busy times this may not be possible.  Please consider this if travelling some distance.

The duration of each trip approx. 30 mins.

All timings are approximate – it’s the nature of boating!

Dogs are not permitted on the boat, but are welcome on a lead in the canal depot.

To reach the boat moorings, entails a walk of approx 500 yds along a surfaced towpath.  Passengers need to be able to cope with stepping on and off the boat.  There are no facilities for the disabled on board.
