All public trips which start at 2.30 pm last for 2 – 2½ hrs except for the October trips which last for 1 – 1½ hours.
The public trips which start at 11.30 last for 1 – 1½ hours.

The 2-2½ hr trips go through Dun Mill and Wire Locks returning to to Hungerford at approximately 5pm.  The 1 – 1½ hour trips go through Dunmill Lock and return to Hungerford 1 – 1½ hours later.  With the longer trips it maybe possible to DSC_1403Rose leaving Hungerforddisembark briefly at Wire Lock, depending on the conditions, in order to stretch ones legs and enjoy the views of the magnificent Berkshire countryside.


The “Rose of Hungerford” is a purpose built 55 feet long wide-beamed passenger trip boat owned by the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust and has a maximum capacity of 50 passengers.


It is operated by volunteers of the Kennet and Avon Canal Trust. The Rose has sliding picture windows for warm days, but is fully enclosed with central heating if necessary.

Whilst we normally allow well behaved dogs on the Rose, it is up to the Skipper on the day to ensure there are no objections from other passengers.

Hot and cold drinks and a fully licensed bar are available on trips. The Rose also has an electric wheelchair lift * and a toilet large enough to accommodate wheelchairs.

* Please note that the lift is designed to take a “Standard Self-Propel Wheelchair”, which is 45″ long and 25″ wide
