We booked on line the morning we decided to go ( it was a beautiful day), parked in Broughton Park and Ride, getting off by The Barrs. The river is well signed from the Main Street, and you can walk down there - we walked through Grosvenor Park, but if you head for the clock tower you can climb up to the walls from there and have a really nice walk past some Roman remains down to the river. We headed for the boat ( Mark Twain in our case), showed the person in the cabin our booking on the phone, and climbed upstairs. I would recommend going upstairs if you can because you have a really good view of the gardens and buildings on the river bank.. A commentary runs with interesting facts about the buildings - a fascinating insight. After 15 minutes we turned round and headed back. It was just a very pleasant half hour on a lovely afternoon. And then an ice cream - try Sugbury’s , a local firm and absolutely delicious!!
Driver very helpful as I had booked online then forgot my phone on the day!! Paid again but hoping for refund of original booking. Bus tour very informative and enjoyable, very impressed with Chester. We were only there for the day so this was the perfect way to see all the interesting new Roman sites that have been excavated.
Timing was accurate. Commentary was informative although I coudn't hear much of it due to 2 children behind me screaming & shouting.
Lovely cruise,informative and delightful. Not crowded, well organised and all on time.
The information was informative & relative. It was only provided in English
