Two Hour Iron Bridge Cruise 2019

Leave the city behind.....

Step aboard the Mark Twain or the Lady Diana for a two-hour cruise that’s a real treat. Get comfortable and enjoy a drink from the bar as you glide through rural Cheshire, along the beautiful River Dee.

From our boat house at The Groves, in Chester, we head southwards, out of the city. We’ll pass by Heronbridge and Eccleston Ferry, with its Grade II listed ferry house. The river meanders through some spectacular scenery around the Crook of Dee and through the Eaton Estate, home to the Duke and Duchess of Westminster. We’ll pass under the ornate Iron Bridge at Aldford, before returning to Chester.

This is a very tranquil stretch of the Dee with opportunities to spot wildlife, including swans, herons, cormorants, moorhens and – if your eyes are sharp – a kingfisher or two, so keep your camera ready! 

 An informative sightseeing commentary will keep you informed about the river and its surroundings. There are two sailings a day during spring and summer,  so you can plan your lunch around sailing times – or even bring a packed lunch aboard!
