The Handsam Boat Company offer a variety of scenic boat trips down the River Avon at Evesham, departing from the award winning Abbey Park, where you can also picnic to a live musical accompaniment on Sundays in summer.
Take your pick from a 25 minute trip on the large vessel which visits Evesham Lock and passes Hampton Church; a private hire 4 stroke outboard motor boat; or a row boat, which is suitable for up to 4 people and you are given buoyancy aids and basic instruction.
There is a natural element of weather dependency but not so much with the larger vessel as all the seating is under cover.
The Abbey ruins nearby in the park are also worth a stroll past, with the atmospheric 16th century Bell Tower being a favourite with kids.
Sat Nav users should be advised to use WR11 4ST as a postcode when planning their journey.
All boat tours become available from the end of March until mid October from 11 AM until 4.30 PM with trips departing every half hour
Boat trips from £3.50 for Adults & £2 for Children Private, party, & family discounted rates also available upon booking
