Once you get down to the canal side - lots of steps down - you get on the boat and it takes you through the heart of Birmingham, Land marks are pointed out on the way. We picked a lovely sunny day and it was a very relaxing cruise.

We had an amazing time and the boat was better than expected! Amazing time and well worth the money. Contact with Jenny to book was easy and she helped match all our needs. She made the whole experience easy would definitely recommend to anyone who wants something different!!!

We rented the boat on Saturday 18th February and we booked the 7-10 slot with buffet too. We had a fantastic night out. The lady in charge of the boat was very kind and when I needed to contact her via email she responded straight away at each time. No question was too much effort for her, we arranged to meet her early to decoarate the boat. It was lovely inside. A very well stocked bar one end (drinks were excellent value for money) and an amazing cold buffet along the side. We had a great night with games and laughter. Anytime we needed she was there to supply. Would defintley recommended as we had a fantastic night and it was something different then the normal hen nights. We loved it. Thank you so much again........

I went on the canal boat 'Frederick' as part of a Hen Party and it was a fantastic night out. We had the boat from 7pm to 10pm and it was great travelling up and down the canals whilst partying on board. The boat was quite spacious, there were 23 of us, and we particularly enjoyed the open air section as it was a lovely night. The bar was well stocked and the drinks were incredibly cheap (e.g. £3 for a G&T, £2.50 for a Smirnoff Ice). The lady running the bar and the man driving the barge were friendly and it all ran so smoothly.

It was a great experience and good fun - would definitely recommend.
