Join Exeter alumni for a Cruise with a difference on a horse drawn canal boat along the Grand Western Canal
Spend two and a half hours on a traditional horse-drawn barge, the last in the West Country, cruising at a leisurely pace through the beautiful Devon countryside, enjoying an informative commentary on the way.
The journey takes us past well-kept gardens into the countryside, passing under bridges and past fields and woodland to a stopping point where we can often alight as the barge makes ready for the return journey.
Tiverton Canal Basin, EX16 4HX (Pay and display car park, £2 all day)
Stagecoach No 55 runs from Exeter to Tiverton Bus Station, then Tidcombe Circular 353 to Canal Hill.
Time: Meet for lunch at the Canal Tea Rooms, access at the far end of the car park at 12 noon.
If not taking lunch, meet at the Canal Tea Rooms gate at 1.15pm for the cruise which departs promptly at 2.00pm, to move as a group to the Canal Basin to board the barge.
