Three Hour Boat Trip (without food)

We now offer an opportunity to enjoy the views from our comfortable and sophisticated narrow boat, we decided to offer this choice without food because many of our customers have asked just to sit in and soak in the views before or after eating at another eating establishment. There is always, of course, a fully licensed bar, draught beer, an array of teas and coffees and bar snacks always on board at extra cost.

This is available all week round for £21 per person but we must state we require at least ten passagers to make the journey viable, so a family gathering or a group of friends to have the experience of cruising along Birminghams historically rich canals will be an experience to remember.
