We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Gloucester Docks was used in the Disney blockbuster ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’, and you can cruise along the same stretch of water that appears in the film.

The museum offers a great selection of boat trips and hire options on its two boats – King Arthur and Queen Boadicea II.

Boat trips run from May until the end of October each year and the trips depart from the dockside at Merchants Quay, next to Vining’s Restaurant.

Queen Boadicea II will take you on a 45-minute boat trip along the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal with running commentary. Trips run every weekend at 1.30pm (and every day during the school holidays).  The boat departs from the quayside through the museum. 

Our pleasure boat King Arthur is available for private hire and also offers scheduled cruises. Please contact the museum for more information.
