Attraction Information

Get a totally unique perspective of Manchester from their historic ship canal, with Manchester River Cruises.

On the Princess Katherine - yes, she has a name - you can sit inside or out in nice weather. They run plenty of family friendly activities including kid takeover events, including Pirate Club and Cruises with Santa. Learn about the history of the city: as an old industrial town, Manchester’s shipping canals were essential.

You can even take one of Princess Katherine’s return trips to Old Trafford where Manchester United play. A must for footy fans!
