New Grand Union Routes for the Wessex Rose in 2018
So far our cruise routes have focused on the Kennet and Avon Navigation and the River Thames and in 2016 we introduced new routes from Bradford on Avon to Bristol at the Western end of the Kennet and Avon and from Oxford downstream to Kingston Upon Thames on the River Thames. These proved to be as popular as our existing routes and were quickly booked up again when included in the schedule for 2017.
So in the spirit of adventure and in response to guests expressing an interest in cruising even further afield, we are adding more new routes for our 2018 season. These new cruises will extend our journey beyond Kingston on Thames to Stoke Bruerne on the Grand Union Canal and back again – a total of four seven night cruises, 160 miles and 184 locks!
If you’re interested in joining us for our maiden voyages on these new routes, we would love for you to join us. The cruise dates and availability can be seen on our 2018 schedule (cruises 17,18,19 & 20) and for a full cruise description simply click on the ‘details’ link.
