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.

Very interesting trip along the canal with good commentary from the skipper...We both enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it.

Meet Queen Boadicea II, Dunkirk Little Ship

Built in 1936 as a Thames pleasure boat, Queen Boadicea II played her part in the Second World War as one of the Dunkirk Little Ships. She saw action in Dunkirk harbour where she evacuated many stranded soldiers.

After the war she returned to passenger service on the Thames. After working for some time on the River Dart, QBII came to Gloucester where she continues to work as a pleasure boat, carrying visitors along the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal. She is listed on the National Historic Ships Register.

Sailing Times

As we continue to support the national effort to keep people safe and continue to follow Government guidance, we are unfortunately not able to run our boat trips.

It’s a challenging time for our own Dunkirk Little Ship but we really hope to get her back in safe service for Spring 2021.

Please keep checking our social media for updates on re-sailing, and we hope to welcome everyone back as soon as it is safe to do so.
