We run Regular Trips on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from Easter to the end of November. Depending on the day, trips depart at 10 am and/or 2 pm.
Every Wednesday, selected Saturday and selected Sundays, experience travelling through the Bradford Lock and cruise to the historic Grade II listed Avoncliff Aqueduct.
On selected Sundays we run an afternoon trip either through tree-lined woodland to Hilperton (lasting 2½ hours).
On some Sundays we run a shorter trip, lasting c.90 minutes, either past Bradford Marina and Widbrook Wood to the Widbrook winding hole, or down the Bradford Lock, past the Tithe Barn, to the Meadows Bridge “winding hole” where the boat will turn. These shorter trips are specially suitable for younger children.
We also run a number of mid-week shorter canal trips to Meadow’s Bridge.
