"Our scheduled cruises make a great day out for all the family. An ideal present or simply an excuse to enjoy a day out along the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal or Tewkesbury. King Arthur consists of a covered deck area, below deck saloon and fully licensed bar. The seated deck area provides a splendid viewing platform to take in the sites during your cruise. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more people. King Arthur provides a unique venue for your own private event. We cater for all occasions including lunches and dinners, parties, wedding receptions and corporate events. Fully seated King Arthur can accommodate up to 46 people for lunch or dinner, using both decks we can hold a maximum of 100 people for a party or drinks reception (maximum of 60 people during the winter). In addition to tailored cruises, King Arthur can also be hired moored on the quayside, making it an ideal venue for an event with a difference. Corporate meetings and team building events also catered for.
