Boaters call people who sit and watch boats go by ‘Gongoozlers’. We want you to enjoy life on our wonderful canals and so our new Discovery Day Trips are designed to let you sample the pleasures of steering a wide-beam canal boat, working a boat through locks, finding out where canal water comes from (and goes too) and exploring the amazing heritage of the Kennet and Avon Canal.
Discovery Trips start at Bedwyn Wharf and take small groups of guests up four locks to the famous Crofton Pumping Station and Beam Engines. These are very practical and interactive day trips and are led by expert crews and skippers. They are suitable for anyone, but especially for people with limited mobility or who are vulnerable in any way.
Please follow the links for pricing, dates and times of 2022 trips.
Discovery Trips offer a full day experience for adults and students.
