Cotswold Canals Trust Members Cruise
Cruise the Gloucester – Sharpness Canal on board MV King Arthur
Six hours of spectacular views
The six hour return trip provides unique views of the canal’s wooded cuttings, elevated views from its embankments, spectacular vistas across the River Severn and impressive outlooks towards the Cotswold escarpment. Photographers and wild life spotters could have a busy day.
Bring a Picnic
The non-stop nature of the cruise means you can bring a picnic lunch to enjoy with a glass of wine, beer, soft drinks or tea & coffee from the bar on board.
The lower deck saloon provides carpeted comfort with good views from the large windows. (Third photo shows a recent wedding scene)
An exclusive opportunity
Passenger numbers are limited to 100. Early indications suggest this exclusive opportunity to cruise with fellow Trust members could sell out very quickly. So, please book early!
Adult – £15
