What You Can Expect

Enjoy a different view of the glorious heart of Bath, one of England's most beautiful cities and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on this 25-minute river trip in a traditional river cruiser. Relax with your small group of no more than eight people on the lovingly refurbished boat as you admire sights including Pulteney Bridge and Bath Abbey.

Board your craft at Broad Quay, on the River Avon in the heart of Bath, at 10am, 3pm, or 4:30pm. On sunny days, the cockpit roof will be open to the sunshine, while on cooler days the real coal fire will keep the saloon toasty warm.

As you cruise the river in this authentic and lovingly restored 1960s Broads Cruiser, your skipper will point out the key attractions. You'll see the entrance to the Kennet and Avon Canal, which links London with the Bristol Channel, and cruise under North Parade Bridge. Look out for nesting peregrine falcons at 19th-century St. John's Church, and marvel at the views of Pulteney Bridge, the rushing weir, and the city center architecture, including 17th-century Bath Abbey.

From Pulteney Bridge you'll turn and head back downriver. Pass under Halfpenny Bridge and see the location where the old wharves used to stand, the central point of Bath's trading links with Bristol since the eighteenth century.

Finally, return to Broad Quay where you'll disembark at either 10:25am, 3:25pm, or 4:55pm.
