Explore on theSchool Cruises


We will be offering children the unique opportunity to steam down the Manchester Ship Canal on the last steam tug tender that operated there.

Cruises will leave from Telford Quay in Ellesmere Port, and will last approximately one hour and cost £120 per class (approximately £4 per child). Timings may vary slightly according to steam levels and environmental factors.

The cruises will be offered in partnership with the National Waterways Museum, and a joint ticket will be available at a discounted rate. Children will be invited to combine the experience of a cruise on the Danny with a visit including the Museum’s Window on the World display. We will be offering a joint ticket for the two learning opportunities, and children will be able to have lunch and store their belongings at the Museum.

More details will be available on the website shortly.
