Manchester by Canal, Peak District and Roman Chester - Excursions

Manchester City by Canal and Lunch

We board our boat late morning at Castlefield then set sail, taking in the scenery and listening to interesting commentary as our freshly prepared meal is served. Drinks may be purchased from the licensed bar. Arriving at Pomona Lock, our boat is lowered on to the Manchester Ship Canal then we cruise on to Salford Quays where we disembark for free time to explore the attractions.  We re-join our boat mid-afternoon for coffee and cake as we sail back to Castlefield. 

Buxton and Bakewell

First up is beautiful Buxton, a spa town with landmarks such as Solomon’s Temple, the Grade I listed Crescent, the Devonshire Dome and Poole’s Cavern – a two-million-yearold limestone cave. We continue to the market town of Bakewell, home to grand period houses and the eponymous tart.


Discover the endless charms of Chester. Perhaps walk the old City Walls to get a bird’s eye view of the city centre and the River Dee. Visit the cathedral, a beautiful building that began life as a Saxon Minster, or discover the Roman amphitheatre, the castle and The Rows.
