Join Gromit on a ferry trip


Make the most of the last of the summer sun on a trip with Bristol Ferry

Want to see the city in a different light? Head down to the Harbourside and take a look at Bristol from a duck’s perspective! There’s no more summery way to travel than by boat, and Bristol’s ferry service is no exception. With regular services timetabled throughout the day and special trips available for those wanting to go further afield, Bristol Ferry is a delicious way to spend a summer’s afternoon. And, if you’re lucky, you may get to have a ride with Gromit, who fronts one of the vessels!



As well as the regular ferry service, which goes up and down the river throughout the day, Bristol Ferry offers special trips. Favourites include the Avon Gorge Tour, with some stunning scenery along the route, Beese’s River Trips – which include a visit to the lovely Beese’s tea room, and Harbour Commentary Tours. Nature lovers will be especially keen on the Wildlife Gorge Trip, which gives novices and experts alike the opportunity to get better acquainted with some of the flora and fauna along the Gorge.


The ferries are also available for private hire, including for weddings and party packages, and if you want to give someone a unique gift, there’s nothing more original than the gift of an experience. You can buy gift vouchers for the public trips from their website. For more information, drop them a line:, or call them on 0117 927 3416.
