Swingbridge Community boat cruise

 

Swingbridge cruise boat cruise – for information in case you want to organise your own event

 

Swingbridge Community Boats, part of Surrey Care Trust, offers a two-hour cruise on the River Wey for young people, community groups, the elderly and families, particularly those who have limited mobility or other special needs. These outings offer a wonderful opportunity to enhance wellbeing by the soothing speed and tranquility of travelling on water.

 

The specially adapted boat is fitted with a wheelchair lift to enable people with a range of disabilities to enjoy a cruise with the peace and quiet of travel on the river. A 40ft long broad beam boat features an all-weather canopy, ensuring your outing is not weather dependent. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided on board and groups are welcome to bring packed lunches.

 

A two-hour cruise on the River Wey costs from £80 per group and departs from the National Trust’s Dapdune Wharf in Guildford at 10.30am and 1.30pm every weekday.

 

The Branch has no plan in place currently to organise a boat trip.
