Trip Booking


All Jubilee’s trips remain suspended. We have reluctantly decided that despite the easing of lockdown measures, it will not be possible offer any trips for the time being.  Sorry for any disappointment. We hope to be back operating again as soon as it is safe to do so and look forward to welcoming you on board then.

Our public trips are on Saturdays and Sundays at 12 noon and 2pm from April to October and on Thursdays at 2pm from April to the end of September.
