Take in 2 great tours and get the most out of your visit to Chester!

Whether visiting for one day or two weeks, a combined boat and bus ticket offers perhaps the best value of all the things to do in Chester and helps you make the most of your visit to our historic city. You will even save money too!

With a joint ticket you can join the Half Hour City Cruise of Chester and then experience an open top bus tour around the city. With a “Hop-on-hop-off” bus ticket you can see all of the famous sights for 24 hours, giving you the freedom of the city.

The bus stop is right next to our landing stage, meaning you can disembark after your river cruise straight onto an open top bus. However, you don’t have to take the bus tour on the same day; in fact you could retain your bus ticket to use on any day during your stay and you will still get 24 hours validity on the ticket. Discounted tickets are available on-board the boats or online.

The bus tour can be combined with either our Half Hour City cruise or our 2 Hour Iron Bridge Cruise. To see prices and dates for combining with the 2 Hour Iron Bridge cruise, click here.
