Enjoy a cruise on the new John Varley II Canal Boat!

Why not hop on the new John Varley II Canal boat and enjoy a cruise along the southern part of James Brindley’s beautiful and historic Chesterfield Canal?

Revel in Derbyshire’s stunning scenery and see what wildlife you can spot as you cruise! There are swans, kingfishers, heron, grebes, water voles and many other types of wildlife to look out for. These Sunday afternoon trips are ideal for families at 45 minutes long.

Advance booking is not needed for these trips – you can just ‘turn up and cruise!

These trips run every hour from 12 noon until 3pm on Sunday afternoons and from 11am until 3pm on Bank Holiday Mondays and Tuesdays and Thursdays in the School Holidays.
