Public Trips

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 September.

Board our 29 seat narrowboat for a relaxing trip through historic Newbury with our enthusiastic, knowledgeable and fully-trained volunteer crew. There’s plenty of interest to be seen as you rise up a lock and cruise through a swing bridge

Tea, coffee and light refreshments available. Enjoy a glass of wine or beer from our licensed bar.
