The trips run every 30 minutes and costs £3.50 per person. Its a pleasant trip up the canal and into the mouth of the famous Blisworth Tunnel. Once inside they turn out the light briefly so you get a sense of how dark it is...More

The boat trip goes a little way(about 800 metres est.) down towards the tunnel before spinning around and returning.A very relaxing way to spend 30 minutes and the trip cost us both £7.00.

Really handy to be able to just turn up. These trips last 25 minutes and run every half hour. You go part way into Blissworth tunnel then reverse out - very good indeed.
