We travelled on the canal in November, which resulted in us being the only passengers onboard. Many companies would have cancelled such a trip with so few passengers. We were warmly greeted and shown how we could make free hot drinks on the small stove....More

Having visited different events in the past we were slightly disappointed. Whilst waiting to meet Father Christmas it was quite boring as there was little entertainment.

Thank you for your feedback and we appreciate your honesty. I’m sorry to say that Santa is getting a bit older and can’t come on and off the boat as easily, so we did have to change the format. Thank you for your suggestions though...More

A pleasant afternoon spent on board.The soup was hot and delicious.The dinner was tasty and there was plenty of it.The Christmas pudding and rum sauce was lovely. We enjoyed ourselves but it just lacked a bit of atmosphere.

It goes past it yes but when I was on the boat it never stopped off there as it was a canal trip up and down only but im sure if you email them and enquire they would let you no.
