Winter Warmer Lunch Cruises

Warm up for Christmas

Take a break from the Christmas shopping with our Winter Warmer Lunch Cruises.

Combine a delicious lunch with a sightseeing cruise and commentary, on a fully heated boat with seasonal decorations.

Our moorings on The Groves are just a short walk from Chester city centre. From The Groves we head upstream past stunning riverside homes and gardens, and out into the tranquil Cheshire countryside.

Choose from a festive sandwich with soup or a delicious chippy lunch – both options perfect to warm you up and get you in the festive mood.

Winter Warmer Lunch Cruises sail at 12 noon on selected dates in November and December. Booking is essential. Fully stocked bar on board.
