The Cotswold Canals Trust public boat trips are back and this year will be better than ever.
Not only will trips depart from Ebley Wharf, but due to popular demand, they will also depart from Wallbridge in Stroud.
Each location will run on alternative Saturday’s with the first trip of the season departing at 11am from Wallbridge this Saturday, April 22nd.
From Wallbridge, the volunteer crew will guide passengers on a relaxing 25 minute journey aboard Trip Boat Perseverance towards Bowbridge before returning. For trips departing from Ebley, the crew will head in a westerly direction aboard Trip Boat Endeavour towards Ryeford before returning.
Trips cost £5 per adult and £3 for a child and run every 30 minutes. To guarantee a time slot, we recommend booking advance at www.cotswoldcanals.org/events and selecting the date of the trip required. Walk in’s are welcome but are subject to availability.
The recently opened café ‘The Snug’ at Wallbridge will be open serving cream teas for passengers to enjoy before or after their boat trip and the Wallbride Visitor Centre volunteers will be on duty to help with canal related questions or sign up new members.
Travelling along the Cotswold Canals by trip boat is a unique and relaxing way to view and learn about the restoration work that has been achieved by volunteers. Not only do Cotswold Canals Trust offer public trips, but private charters can be booked aboard any of the four trips boats moored at Wallbridge, Ebley, Saul and Lechlade.
