The trip was excellent, informative,amusing, interesting and dogs are allowed. This really was well worth doing, we all agreed it was far better than we expected a family ticket is only £18.00 pounds. This is a must go see and do.

Had a leisurely trip on the river with an informative commentary which highlighted the sights worth seeing once back on dry land.

To the left of where the boat docks, with the river on your right, there is metered parking towards the park. Seemed to be a lot of spaces available whenever we walked past.
