Lunchtime River Cruise on the River Avon from Bath
From US$28.00

Maximize your time in Bath and enjoy an alternative perspective of the city on a 3.5-hour cruise on the Avon River. On a vintage 1960s boat, you’ll glide downstream past picturesque countryside and historic monuments. Refresh with lunch (own expense) in The Locksbrook Inn, a welcoming establishment that boasts views of the River Avon, during relaxed free time. This small-group tour is limited to eight passengers to ensure an intimate atmosphere.

What to Expect

After making your own way to Broad Quay Moorings, located on the river beside Avon Street Car Park, greet your skipper and climb aboard your boat, a vintage 1960s cruiser.

Make yourself comfortable in the saloon, join your skipper in the cockpit, or, if the sun is shining, relax on the roof. As you glide down the Avon River, past enchanting countryside scenes and historic districts, your guide provides commentary that sheds light on Bath’s history.

On arrival at the Locksbrook Inn pub, you’ll have the chance to purchase classic English dishes and alcoholic drinks. Spend a while soaking up the pub’s warm atmosphere before you return to the boat, where tea and coffee is available to purchase.

Your tour concludes at your original departure point at Broad Quay Moorings.
