Unwind on a relaxing boat tour of Bath and enjoy the beautiful Georgian and Victorian architecture along the historic Kennet and Avon Canal. The peaceful sound of gently lapping water is known to put even the rowdiest babies to sleep for the whole tour!

Want privacy? Book a private tour on Lady Lena - built in 1890, she’s the oldest electric boat in the world. The tour gives you 2 hours on the water with 2-10 of your closest people. On-board you can enjoy great views, cream tea and champagne for the grow-ups!

Don’t mind sharing? Join a public tour on the Sir John Knill - a modern, solar-assisted, wheelchair and buggy friendly waterbus. The public tour of Bath takes you on a 45-minute journey between Bathampton and Bath Top Lock. Riding with other tourist means you can share the excitement of the experience.
