Escape the crowds and drift away in a traditional English Punt. Passengers get the boats to themselves as they wind through beautiful formal gardens out into the tranquil nature reserve or, travel back in time to discover the secrets of the old roman canal.
All our boatmen have undertaken disability awareness training and several key members are certified in assistance and hoist procedures. We provide access for wheelchair users via transfer board or hoist (coming soon) as well as an extensive range of other mobility/access requirements.
Please contact us for further information regarding specific requirements, concerns or advice on planning your visit.
Access with steps
Travel by public transport
Travel by taxi
We have two access points. The main entrance is at the steps leading down to the baots. Here we have railings and assistance for those with limited mobility requirements. A short distance away we can provide easy level access via a gentle slope to waiting boats, which can be secured alongside wheelchairs.
Path to main entrance
The slipway is easily accessible for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility issues. The boats can be secured next to wheelchairs providing a solid base on which to transfer via slideboard or, if able to stand, with assistance from trained boatmen. We will shortly have access to a mobile hoist and this will enable us to provide safe access to wheelchair users who may also have limited upper body movement. The slipway is away from the main street, allowing a more discreet location for those who may require it.
