Afternoon Tea Cruise

New for 2017

Afternoon Tea was invented by the Duchess of Bedford in 1840, by which time the Union Canal was already a busy route for haulage and commuters. So why has it taken until 2017 to combine the two? Because now the Union Canal is a fantastic place to relax and unwind with a peaceful cruise ideal for sampling the delights of our Afternoon Tea.

Our next cruise will be on the 30th April at 2pm, Treat yourself to this unique Afternoon Tea experience. Click below to purchase tickets,
