Enjoy the freedom of the city

We’ve teamed up with City Sightseeing to offer a great value boat and bus ticket, helping you get the most out of your time exploring historic Chester – while someone else does the driving!

With a joint ticket you can enjoy our ever-popular Two-hour Iron Bridge cruise, sailing beyond the city into the Cheshire countryside and through Duke of Westminster’s estate. The open-top bus will then pick you up from the stop right next to our landing stage. Simply hop on board and hop off when you choose!

Please note: You can use your bus ticket during any 24 hour period during your stay: it doesn’t have to be the same day as your cruise. If you would like to enjoy the cruise and bus tour on the same day, however, you will need to book the two-hour cruise at 12noon. Our 2:30pm cruise returns to The Groves after the last tour bus leaves at 4pm.

These combined tickets are not available from City Sightseeing and cannot be bought on the bus. Enjoy your cruise first, then join the bus afterwards. 

Please note: Under 5s sail for free but there is a maximum of two per paying Adult or Concession. Additional Under 5s would then need to be paid for at the Child rate.

Terms and Conditions of Carriage

Before taking a cruise with us, please ensure that you read our Terms and Conditions of Carriage; we want all of our passengers to enjoy their cruise in a safe environment. Thank You.
