Enjoy the Freedom of the City

We’ve teamed up with City Sightseeing to offer a great value ticket to help you make the very most of your time exploring historic Chester.

With a joint ticket you can join the Half Hour City Cruise along the beautiful River Dee, then join the open-top bus tour around the city. With a hop-on, hop-off bus ticket, valid for 24 hours, you’ll see all of the famous sights.

The tour bus stops right next to our landing stage, meaning you can join the bus straight after your cruise if you so wish. You don’t even have to take the bus tour on the same day, however – you can save your bus ticket for use during any 24-hour period of your stay.

Discounted tickets are available on-board the boats or online.

Fancy a longer cruise? You can also buy a combined bus and boat ticket for our Two-hour Iron Bridge Cruise.
