Little Skippers – Canal Life

Discover the secrets of the canal working boats


Our hugely popular school holiday activities and boat trip are back for more family fun this summer!

Join us at Little Skippers for a 45 minute boat trip followed by things to make and do. This summer we’ve got a three different themes for Little Skippers across the holidays, each with different fun activities for you!

At Canal Life you’ll can get hands on with the special items that canal boating families used as you make your own crafts to take home that are inspired by them. Get stuck in with our canal model to learn how locks work and add your artwork to our giant canal mural.

Tickets are just £4.75 each and include the boat trip as well as activities for children and a hot drink from The Gongoozler for adults. The boat departs at 10am – visitors are encouraged to arrive by 9.50am to check-in before their trip.

Little Skippers – Canal Life will be running on selected days in the summer holidays – see the calendar to the right for available dates.
