Chartering our horse-drawn barge makes an excellent and educational day out for school parties. It’s the ideal setting in which to learn more about transport, or just as a special day out, not only for the pupils, but also the teachers!
We offer a special 2 hour charter price for schools for a morning trip Monday - Friday.
To ensure that your group is well looked after, the boat has a crew of three: two boating experts and one galley crew. One member of the crew is a qualified boatmaster , in charge of the crew, and responsible for passenger safety.
Our horse-drawn barge, Kennet Valley, is licensed to carry 64 passengers, but if food is being served, the maximum is 53 passengers.
