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

Boat trips

Relive a bit of Hollywood on one of our boat trips. Gloucester Docks was the backdrop for Disney's blockbuster ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’, and you can cruise along the same stretch of water that appears in the film.

Did you know that our tour boat, Queen Boadicea II, was one of the 'Little Ships’ of Dunkirk and in May 1940 helped evacuate troops from the beaches of Dunkirk. National Waterways Museum, Gloucester
