On a nice sunny day this can be a nice relaxing trip down (or up) the River Avon getting a chance to see some of the riverside history.Quite a pleasant experience with a bit of Bath history around the locks added in also.

A brilliant trip and highly recommended, very relaxing and lovely staff. You could do as much or as little as you wanted including helping to open and close the lock and having a go at steering the boat. The boat is very comfortable and clean and easy to see out of. The staff very helpfully let the Boathouse pub know what food you want so that it is ready when you arrive definitely book a table before you go as it is a very busy pub, we had the roast and it was very good. Would definitely take this trip again.
