Our Gongoozler Restaurant, Function Room and Boats can all be hired privately and we will work with you to tailor your requirements into a memorable event. Refreshments can be added to your booking and served on some of our boats or prior to you boarding in our Gongoozler restaurant or function room. We can also organise team building activities for you - for example reviving the traditional art of "legging" through the tunnels or undertaking canal clean up projects. We also have Canal Safari sheets for younger guests.
