Half Hour City Cruise 2019

Please note: your ticket will be valid for any single sailing on your chosen date. You do not need to choose a time when booking.

This tranquil half-hour cruise along the River Dee departs from The Groves. From there, we'll take you upstream, under the suspension bridge, past Grosvenor Park and the Earl’s Eye, then we'll follow the long sweep of the Meadows to the city limits before we return you to The Groves. The cruise offers a new view of Chester and takes in some beautiful and interesting riverside properties. Look out for the local wildlife too, including swans, cormorants and kingfishers.
