This was a fantastic Trip. A beautiful sunny end of winter day. The trip was just magical. For $9(quid) it was way well worth it. So romantic.

Hi Deborah, thank you for submitting a review. Unfortunately your review is about another operator as our boat does not possess a roof. Perhaps you could be so kind as to ask Tripadvisor to reallocate your review to the correct business. Thanks again :)

Hi the closest car park is on North parade bridge, either the Bath sport centre or across the road at the cricket ground.
