Queen Boadicea II and King Arthur
Gloucester Waterways Museum offers a great selection of boat trip and hire options on its two boats; King Arthur and Queen Boadicea II. Trips depart from the dockside at the museum for either the River Severn or the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal.
Climb aboard for a 45 minute trip along the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal and learn more about the history of Gloucester as the skipper provides a historic commentary.
Built in 1936 by Thornycroft, Southampton, QUEEN BOADICEA II is a passenger vessel with a steel hull and a Gardner 6LX diesel engine. She has the capacity for 145 passengers. She was built for work on the River Thames between Richmond and Hampton Court.
King Arthur offers a spacious covered deck area. The saloon has a seating capacity of 42 (around tables), with a maximum capacity of 100, so you can relax and enjoy their bar and saloon while cruising along the River Severn or Gloucester & Sharpness canal. (Please note that in winter we carry a maximum of 60 people).
