Wey & Arun Canal Cruise

Just a stones throw away from the pub where you will enjoy your Ploughman’s lunch, board your canal boat for a restful afternoon.


Your group will have their very own chartered boat for an hour and a half cruise, admiring the beautiful scenery as you while away the afternoon.  In 1816, The Wey & Arun Junction Canal opened to great fanfare, linking the Wey Navigation near Guildford to the south coast via the Arun Navigation.


Conceived during the Napoleonic Wars, the Canal was intended to provide a safe, efficient route from London to Portsmouth to carry goods supplying the dockyards. In its heyday, the Canal did carry many tons of cargo, but the end of the war with France, and the arrival of the railways, sounded the death knell for the Wey & Arun as a business, and by 1871 it was formally closed.

Please note, there is a maximum number of 48 people for this tour.
