What we offer in.....Ellesmere Port


At Ellesmere Port, we offer schoolchildren cruises on board the Danny along the Manchester Ship Canal. We are running five of these this year at a very reasonable cost, thanks to generous subsidy from the Heritage Lottery Fund, and as part of a joint learning programme with the National Waterways Museum and Archive.

The cruise is an extraordinary opportunity for children to experience history, geography, and science in a very visceral, immediate and enjoyable way. As they explore, the crew are happy to answer their questions about how the engines work, what the various crew members do, what the Danny did in the past, and what they can see as they steam past.
