Narrowboat Cruises on the Grand Union Canal

Enjoy a relaxing narrow boat trip on the Grand Union Canal with Leighton Lady Cruises. Special Cream Tea Cruises take place throughout the year and scheduled public trips are available every Tuesday and Thursday throughout August.
At just over seventy feet long the Leighton Lady embodies a bygone era when people lived and worked on the Grand Union Canal, built in the early 1800’s to carry cargo from London to Birmingham.

The boat was purpose-built for passenger carrying and is a fine example of traditional polished brass and the much loved canal art of hand-painted roses and castles.
All cruises depart from Brantoms Wharf, Leighton Buzzard. Please phone in advance to check availability.
