Horse Drawn Barge Trips In Devon

Tiverton Horse-Drawn Barge Trips

"A little bit of Heaven in Devon”

As the last remaining Horse Drawn Canal Boat (aka a barge) in Devon, and one of the last in the whole of the UK, a trip on the “Tivertonian” offers a truly unique and memorable living heritage experience.

When you visit us, you and your family will experience a naturally, environmentally friendly horse drawn canal boat trip. Just relax, as our crew and large heavy horses, Ross, George or Brindley take you on a historic journey, 200 years into the past, at 2 mph... to a way of life before the invention of steam trains.

The Tivertonian is a wide beam 75-seater horse-drawn barge and is traditionally painted with canal art known as roses and castles. The boat operates public trips on a regular timetable during the daytime from 1st April to 31st October. Our canal boat is also available for private hire during the day and evenings.

So if you're looking for things to do in Devon, book your trip on our barge today!
