A grand day out

editorial image

Entertain the children during the summer holidays with a leisurely cruise along the Grand Union Canal in an enclosed wide beam boat. You will have the opportunity to see locks in action as the boat climbs the Chiltern Hills towards Marsworth village.

The young birds are growing fast and it is lovely to watch the young ducks almost running on the water and the proud swan parents escorting their young up and down the canal. Refreshments including tea, coffee, soft drinks, chocolate, biscuits and crisps are available on board.

Grebe Canal Cruises Ltd has added an additional day boat to its fleet which is available to hire for the day for a family and friends’ day out. They carry a maximum of 12 people and have toilet and cooker facilities on board. You can explore the Grand Union Canal and also have the option of slipping off down the recently re-opened section of the Wendover Arm where there is is an abundance of flora and fauna.
