Cost: ££3.50

A 20-minute one-way boat trip along the Exeter Ship Canal to a local pub. When we disembark, choose whether to take lunch at the pub, stroll back along the towpath, or pay for a return trip on the boat, either immediately or at an agreed time with the boat staff.

You will also discover the fascinating details of Exeter’s maritime history, once one of the country’s busiest ports with access to and from the sea via the Canal. Learn why it became necessary to construct a canal at all, and some interesting snippets about the charming quayside.
