Take to the seas in grand splendour on a Waverley Excursion.

Ride on the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world, which has been fully restored to bring it back to all its glory with huge, towering funnels, clean timber decks, brass so clean you can see your reflection in it and a mighty engine that rumbles beneath your feet as it roars to life. There are several different excursions on offer from exploring the lochs and islands of Scotland to spending the day at the seaside in Devon.

See Tower Bridge open just for you as you sail down the river Thames in old-fashioned style, spotting the sights of London along the way or sail around the Jurassic Coast. On-board you’ll find lots of different eating options, a whisky bar and a tearoom so you can dine in style as you soak up the nostalgia on this beautiful vessel.

Sail on a piece of history!

Weather policy

If a sailing is cancelled due to unfavourable weather conditions, they will offer you the opportunity to use your ticket on any other sailing or refunding your unused tickets.

Guest suitability

For safety reasons the gangways leading onto the ship are ridged and therefore wheelchair passengers, if they can't walk across, will have to be carried. Due to the historic nature of the vessel there are relatively steep stairs leading between the different decks. They are unable to carry electric wheelchairs or motor scooters. Please call in advance if there are any queries.
