Boat Trip on Basingstoke Canal

8th June 2022, 11:00 - 15:00


Basingstoke Canal Boat Trip
Wednesday 8 June 2022
Commencing 11am





The Basingstoke Canal runs for 32 miles, from Greywell Village in Hampshire to Woodham in Surrey. Different parts of the canal hold their own surprises such as the flights of locks in Surrey, the lakes and flashes near Mytchett or the rolling fields and picturesque cottages near Odiham.

The Canal Visitor Centre at Mytchett is the perfect place to start exploring the canal and the Society has chartered Rosebud, which is a friendly 12 seater boat operated by Hampshire County Council.

We will run a series of hour-long boat trips leaving from the Canal Centre in Mytchett and going to Greatbottom Flash and back. All passengers must be able to board the boat unaided.

Our first trip will start at 11:00 am. Subject to numbers we will organise extra trips at 12:15 pm and 1:30 pm. As we have to pay for the charter by the hour we will fill up the earlier times first.  Please indicate your preferred time in the comments box and we will try to accommodate you.     

Light refreshments will be offered in the Function Room at the Canal Centre which the Society has hired for the day. Refreshments may be offered before or after your trip depending on timing.

It is also possible for you to enjoy a self-guided walk along the banks of the canal, which is extremely picturesque and a haven for nature. The canal acts as a green corridor linking the waterway with the wider countryside.

Please note that Hampshire County Council reserve the right to cancel or postpone the charter in the event of very bad weather. In the unlikely event of this happening we will offer a full refund.

This event is not suitable for wheelchairs and no dogs are allowed.  Toilets are located in the Canal Centre.

Please wear appropriate footware and dress according to weather conditions.

Cost to Members £10.00
Cost to Non-members £15.00
