Rivers are the heart of many a city and there are few better ways to discover a city’s spirit than a river cruise. This short-but-sweet Bath river cruise, in a vintage Broads Cruiser with a sunroof for warm days and a coal fire for winter, takes you through the core of the UNESCO-listed city, past landmarks like St. John the Evangelist Church and Pulteney Bridge.

What to Expect

Greet your guide in central Bath and hop aboard a retro Broads Cruiser, a 1960s craft designed for Norfolk's waterways. Accompanied by expert commentary, sail past the start of the Kennet and Avon Canal, pass under North Parade Bridge, and savor views of St. John the Evangelist Church. Keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife, including peregrine falcons.

Snap photos of the landmark Pulteney Bridge and admire the rushing waters of the famous Pulteney Bridge Weir, backed by Bath’s UNESCO-listed Old Town. Discover the city’s history and heritage as your skipper tells stories of ancient Bath, before returning to your starting point, where your tour ends.

Perfect way to see the sights from the river!

I took a day trip from London to Bath, and had only two things on my agenda: the Roman Baths and this river cruise! It was such a great, affordable way to take a fun little trip down the river. The guides were so nice...More

It's nothing spectacular but the view of the bridge and weir make this 30 minute trip worthwhile. It's a nice, intimate trip as the boat can only carry a maximum of 10 passengers. Staff were very helpful when I accidentally booked the wrong date via...More

Thanks for your review. The views of Pulteney Weir are spectacular but we also give a history of the river and there are other sights and landmarks to see too including Bath Abbey and St. John's Church where we can often spot the Peregrine Falcon....More

Relaxed atmosphere sprinkled with lots intriguing information

Absolutely divine. Despite being only 25 minutes, we overall learnt so much! Lots of little bobbits of interesting facts that I would of never known. The hosts were charming and really knew their stuff. I highly recommend the trip for an alternative view of Bath.

Thank crazygingervegan

If you head towards the railway station but just before you get there it’s to the right of it. If you head towards where the canal runs it is along there. Sorry I can’t be more specific ☹️
