Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy Rural Cheshire….

Please note that occasionally we occasionally add additional sailing dates. Scroll down to see which dates have been added for the coming season.

Enjoy a leisurely 2 Hour cruise through ‘Eaton Estate’, home of the Duke and Duchess of Westminster. This stunning journey is an extension of our city cruise up the beautiful River Dee, cruising through rural Cheshire, past Heron Bridge and Eccleston Ferry, meandering around the Crook of Dee and through ‘Eaton Estate’. Just beyond Aldford you will see the wonderful sight of the Iron Bridge, before you then return to Chester.

This is an excellent outing for sightseers to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the river whilst you may also have the opportunity to see and photograph wild life including Swans, Herons, Cormorants, Moorhens and even Kingfishers. Your cruise will be punctuated with informative sightseeing commentary.

There are two sailings a day, 12 Noon and 2:30PM so you can plan your lunch around the time you sail with us; you could even bring your own lunch on board. Even better, if you are booking as a group, why not pre-order lunch from our excellent range of menus.

For groups of 20 or more, you could also enjoy a Vintage Afternoon Tea (12 Noon sailing only), click here for details (must be pre-ordered).

You can also now combine your 2 Hour Iron Bridge cruise with an open top bus tour with City Sightseeing, offering fantastic value for 2 great tours. Click here for details.
