The skipper and crew of the Sabrina make this 45 minute trip well worth trying. The boat is comfortable and the weather exceptional. The trip goes around the loop of the River and the skipper gives all a commentary about the bridges, buildings and history...More

Better than expected, pleasant way to spend 45 minutes. Quite good value with family tickets. The scenery was lovely and the commentary very informative and the guy was amusing. Would recommend booking at the weekend. We got discount by booking at campsite.

To the left of where the boat docks, with the river on your right, there is metered parking towards the park. Seemed to be a lot of spaces available whenever we walked past.
