The plush décor and spacious feel of the Jungle Queen, plus it's fully licensed bar, makes it ideal for any party size up to its maximum of 47 passengers.

Inside the layout is designed with a large open floor space, high ceilings and adequate seating making it comfortable for everyone. There's easy access to both the bow and stern decks with seating and standing area on both for several passengers.  

 

Large windows run down both the port and starboard sides of the barge so you can make the most of the fantastic scenery as the cruise takes you through the idyllic countryside. The barge has full central heating for the colder days, hot and cold water and modern toilets that never fail to impress.

The cost for hiring the barge starts from just £5.00 per person per hour (minimum of 20 passengers). Any less than 20 passengers and unfortunately the price is the same as if there were 20 passengers onboard.

 

These costs are based around a standard 2 hour cruise, however for larger parties (i.e. 35 people +) and cruise durations of 4hrs + the price for hiring the barge is negotiable.

If desired, we can organise a variety of hot or cold food on board including fish & chips
