Bath: Sightseeing Boat Cruise with Prosecco

1. Bath: Sightseeing Boat Cruise with Prosecco

On sunny days, enjoy an open cockpit roof on the boat and on cooler days, stay cozy and warm with a real coal fire. As you enjoy your trip in this authentic and lovingly restored 1960s small cruiser, your skipper will point out the key attractions.  See the entrance to the Kennet and Avon Canal, which links London with the Bristol Channel, and cruise under North Parade Bridge. Look out for nesting peregrine falcons at the 19th-century St. John’s Church, and marvel at the views of Pulteney Bridge, the rushing weir, and the city center architecture, including the 17th-century Bath Abbey. Enjoy your view with 2 glasses of Prosecco while you pass under Halfpenny Bridge and see the location where the old wharves used to stand, the central point of Bath’s trading links with Bristol since the 18th century.

Mia led our tour and she was highly informative and upbeat! The tour was thoroughly enjoyable seeing several sights throughout the city with interesting facts for each. The Prosecco was the icing on the cake, I would highly recommend!

Excellent way to see the City, whilst enjoying a glass, or two, of prosecco (including non alcoholic). Mia was very knowledgeable and a great host.
