A wonderful way to capture the magic of the river is through our guided evening tours!
These tours are provided for the group market throughout the season, usually with a minimum number of ten participants. During the summer months of July and August they are offered to the public on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Booking is made by email or telephone.

The river is particularly beautiful at night, and offers a totally unique perspective of the city. The scene speaks for itself, as a boat gently cruises the river, away from the lights of the city centre, and with an illuminated cathedral shining in the background. What’s more, should Guests wish to bring a bottle of fine wine or champagne along for the trip, then we will happily accommodate them.

In addition to our tour service, we can offer help with planning your itinerary for the night of your visit, and can arrange to combine your evening tour with a gourmet dining experience at any one of Canterbury’s leading traditional historic pubs and restaurants. For more information or to book an evening tour, feel free to email to or alternatively telephone on 07790534744.
