Visit the DannyGroups & Tours

Static or cruising - The Danny offers a unique day out for private groups, tours and coach trips as a visitor attraction which moves as well as a static heritage tourist attraction. As a guided tour experience, The Danny will reveal its history as well as the many personal stories, which will be told by the volunteers who have helped restore the boat.

Requests for talks on the ship by groups and societies are proving so popular we have put together some new packages to include catering.   Stories of The Danny’s history and restoration are  told by our long-standing volunteers who have personally been involved in saving and restoring the historic 1903 steam ship.

We share interesting stories, footage and images of The Danny in her past life as the Chairman’s Launch playing host to a the rich and famous from all over the world in the 1930’s, as well as information on the steam ship’s engines and stories of her working life on the Manchester Ship Canal.

We give an insight into the work needed to save the ship from being scrapped, to becoming the new North West tourist attraction following the support from The Heritage Lottery Fund .
