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.
