We run Public Trips on Wednesdays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays from Easter to the end of November. Depending on the day, trips depart at 10 am and/or 2 pm.
On Saturdays, Wednesdays and Bank Holidays, experience travelling through the lock and cruise to the Avoncliff Aqueduct.
Depending on the date, on Sundays we run an afternoon trip either through tree-lined woodland to Hilperton (lasting 2½ hours), or a shorter trip to Widbrook “winding hole” where the boat will turn (lasting 75-90 minutes, and especially suitable for younger children). We also run some morning trips to the Avoncliff Aqueduct – on which homemade cake/slices will be offered!
