Boat Trips

Zachariah Keppel is accessed via a few narrow steep steps and, although help will be on hand, passengers with very limited mobility will board at their own risk

As a consequence of the Covid-19 virus outbreak, all Boat Trips have been suspended until 1st July. 

Any fees already paid for cancelled public trip bookings will be refunded as soon as possible.

The Wey & Arun Canal Trust runs three trip boats. Our electrically powered boat, Wiggonholt, is wider than a conventional narrowboat and can accommodate up to 48 passengers. It has an access lift for passengers with mobility difficulties. (Please note that mobility impaired passengers should make themselves known to the boat crew or ticket office at least 20 minutes before the scheduled departure time.)

The boats cruise along the idyllic Loxwood Link section of the canal on the Surrey/West Sussex border.

Bookings should be made online using the links on this site:

  • Public trips in 2020 run every Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday from Saturday 4th April until Sunday 25th October.  
  • Our seasonal Special cruises run on various days through the year
  • Private trips are also available

Unless otherwise indicated, all boat trips depart from the Canal Centre behind the Onslow Arms in Loxwood RH14 0RD (GPS Coordinates: 51.069881N, 0.514819W, Google Plus Code: "3FCP+45 Loxwood, Billingshurst", What3Words: ///grin.confused.cavalier).

A large car and coach park for canal visitors is available beyond the Onslow Arms car park.
