Two Hour Cruise and Open-Top Bus Tour

See the sights of Chester by road and by river!

We've teamed up with City Sightseeing to offer a great value boat and bus ticket, helping you get the most from your time exploring historic Chester - while someone else does the driving!

With a joint ticket you can enjoy our ever-popular Two-hour Iron Bridge cruise, sailing beyond the city into the Cheshire countryside and through Duke of Westminster's estate. The open-top bus will then pick you up from the stop right next to our landing stage. Simply hop on board and hop off when you choose!

With this ticket, you'll have the freedom of the city!

Please note: You can use your bus ticket on any single day during your stay: it doesn't have to be the same day as your cruise. If you would like to enjoy the cruise and bus tour on the same day, however, you will need to book the two-hour cruise at 12noon. The 2:30pm cruise returns to The Groves after the last full tour bus leaves there at 4pm.
