In view of the restrictions in place to reduce the spread of Coronavirus the Trustees of The Hargreaves Narrowboat have suspended all trips until further notice.
We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and hope to welcome you onboard in the future
Booking your day trip with us...
Our booking system is run by volunteers and our trips are extremely popular with bookings often made well into the following year. All trips allow 12 passengers maximum, booked as a group.
Allow yourself 20 min to arrive and board at the start, and 20 min to disembark at the end of the trip, plus time for the cruise, and any extra time needed for a stop.
We rely on donations to keep the Hargreaves going. As a guide, consider a minimum of £80 for a day during the week (or £60 for care homes), and £100 for trips at the weekend.
Our bookings calendar can be used to submit a request for booking. Use the form attached to the calendar below and make your submission and someone will contact you back with a confirmation.
All our trips are crewed by volunteers, and we do our best to accommodate your needs.
Booking is not available at an individual rate, only for the whole boat. Why not arrange to come with a group of your friends or family?
Please book early, as our narrowboat is very popular.
If your preferred date is free we will reserve the narrowboat for you. You will need to supply at least two contacts. We write to you nearer the time to confirm that the boat and a crew are available for your trip, and let you know who your captain will be for the day.
Almost all reserved dates are successfully confirmed and are only cancelled due to serious issues beyond our control.
