Themed Trips

Whilst we are planning a full programme of trips in 2021 we cannot guarantee that every trip will run while we are under Covid restrictions. You can book with confidence that, if we cancel a trip for any reason, you will receive a full refund of your money – automatically!

To see our 12-page 2021 canal trip brochure, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

Alternatively, scroll down to see details of each trip, or PLEASE CLICK HERE to make an online booking.

For 2021, all bookings are split into tables of up to 4 people (to ensure social distancing from other passsengers).  If you want to book more than 4 places, please make two or more bookings (e.g. for 7 people, book one table for 4 people and one table for 3 people). Your table(s) will be just for your group – no one else will sit with you.
