Bath: Sightseeing Boat Cruise with Prosecco

Bath: Sightseeing Boat Cruise with Prosecco

See the highlights of Bath from the water on a shared or private cruise on a restored 1960s cruiser. Choose the standard option to enjoy two glasses of Prosecco as you lounge in the sun or by the coal fire. Celebrate your party or get-together with the bottomless Prosecco and gin tasting cruise options. On sunny days, enjoy an open cockpit roof on the boat, or stay cozy and warm with a real coal fire on cooler days. As you enjoy your trip onboard an authentic, 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 see Pulteney Bridge, the rushing weir, and the city center architecture, including the 17th-century Bath Abbey. For standard private and shared tour options, enjoy your view with two 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. Private Bottomless Prosecco Cruise For groups, parties, and other celebrations, pump up the part with the private bottomless Prosecco cruise option. Keep the prosecco flowing as you keep the party going. Enjoy access to the onboard music system to play all your favorite tunes. Private Gin Tasting Cruise Alternatively, sip a G&T with friends with the private gin tasting cruise option. Cranking up the music of your choice and sip on signature boat cocktails. Sit back as your guides talk you through three spirit samples from the Gin collection, all before raising a toast with your favorite gin and mixer.

King Arthur Tour: Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Avebury

King Arthur Tour: Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Avebury

A tour of England's west country, tracing the Arthurian legend. Our tour takes us to the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Stonehenge and Avebury. Glastonbury, according to legend, the final resting place of Arthur, is also on today's itinerary where we will take a hike up Glastonbury Tor, visit the Chalice Well and Glastonbury Abbey. From London we'll call in at Stonehenge to tour the most famous pre-historic stone circle in the world. Nearby is the town of Amesbury, a place with strong Arturian connections. We head further west deep into the land of the summer people, Somerset, and Glastonbury, the mysterious Isle of Avalon, where will climb the Tor for some great views - weather permitting! The Chalice Well is next, a site strongly associated with Joseph of Arimethea, where we can sample the spring waters and enjoy the peace and quiet of the gardens. If we want we can bathe in the chilly waters of the Victorian Pump House directly under the Tor. Next it's time for lunch. Maybe fish and chips in an award winning restaurant? There will be sometime to look around the shops before we visit Glastonbury Abbey, the final resting place of King Arthur...or is it? Backtracking we will drop in Caen Lock to see an impressive flight of canal locks built over 200 years ago. We will pass over Wansdyke, a huge earthwork, built during the time of King Arthur 1500 years ago, some 50 kilometres in length. Nearby is the stone circle of Avebury, the largest in the world within which lies a village complete with shops, a pub and post office. After a walk around the stones we head back to London, passing by an ancient mound associated with Merlin the magician.

Absolutely first class, very Friendly & the young girl (sorry but have forgotten her name!) doing the commentary about the history of Bath, the buildings & the river Avon was first class. We also had Prosecco which she poured perfectly. The driver (again forgotten his name) was very good especially when we approached the weir so we could take photos was amazing. I will definitely book this tour when I come again & recommend it to any of my friends who visit Bath.
