A relaxing pleasant cruise

On this sunny afternoon I so enjoyed the cruise up from the Wharf at Hamilton Gardens. A cafe on board. Relaxing music. Friendly crew and Captain/ Owner to chat to.

Lovely cruise along the river

Lovely cruise along the river with great bunch of ladies. Nice service, although more food options would have been good for the lunchtime cruise - but service was excellent. Great booking through Bookme too!
