Myself and my niece had an enjoyable trip. Starting at the Malta inn after some refreshments. We then got off in town. Short walk across the bridge to the shops. Retail therapy done we hopped back on, to resume the trip. Highly relaxing, enjoyable way to spend a Saturday!

We took this peaceful trip down to the Malta Inn where we got off and had some nice food and drinks followed by a while chilling by the riverside, then took the boat back to town. Nice if you both want a drink and don't want to drive and was a nice peaceful afternoon. Price a tiny bit too much... More

Just did a 'there and back' ride as booked for lunch later - but this was a lovely appetiser. Couldn't boast the bird sightings... More

There were Kingfishers and all types of birds to be seen and the commentary was excellent. We had a small fish n chips for lunch plus a piece of fruit... More

Took the children down to the Malta Inn via the Kentish Lady, lovely cruise along the river. Bar on board (including tea/coffee), snacks. Staff friendly, boat clean (including loos!) Cannot fault! Ideal for an afternoon trip out.
