Bath: 25-Minute City Boat Trip to Pulteney Bridge
- Enjoy a different perspective of Bath on a 1960’s traditional small-river cruiser
- Take in the sights including Pulteney Bridge and Bath Abbey
- Gain an overview of the city's rich history and attractions without the boring bits
Pass the entrance to the Kennet and Avon Canal, which links London with the Bristol Channel, and cruise under the North Parade Bridge. Look out for nesting peregrine falcons at the 19th-century St. John's Church. Marvel at views of Pulteney Bridge, the rushing dam, and the architecture of the city center, including 17th-century Bath Abbey. There, the cruiser will pause to allow time to take in the view.
From Pulteney Bridge, you'll then turn and head back downriver. Pass under the Halfpenny Bridge and see the spot where the old wharves used to stand, the central point of Bath's trading. Tea, coffee, Prosecco, beer, and other beverages can be purchased on board.
