Our hugely popular school holiday activities and boat trip are back for more family fun this Summer! Life on the canals was fascinating - come and experience it for yourselves through hands-on activities and crafts.

Join us at Little Skippers for a 45 minute boat trip followed by things to make and do inspired by typical activities associated with the canal. Get crafty to create ribbon and lace plates, navigate boats round our fun canal system by working the locks and play mix and match with our canal ware objects. 


Tickets are just £6.50 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.

If you’re also bringing any babies who won’t be doing the activities please give us a call on 0121 557 6265 or email us at [email protected] to let us know.
