Trip Bookings on Birdswood
Birdswood is the trip boat belonging to the FCC, and is entirely run by our wonderful team of volunteers. Birdswood runs on scheduled trips throughout the year, open to all members of the public. The duration of a trip is 2 hours and includes a short commentary about the vessel and the canal. We have drinks and snacks for sale on board and there is access to a toilet. Once a month we have a Heritage weekend when Arraslea Shires join us and passengers can enjoy a traditional Horse Drawn Trip.
Come and enjoy a peaceful journey along the canal, introduced by a booming announcement from the FCC President, Brian Blessed. Birdswood is also available for private hire and for specialist educational trips.
