Our 1 hour Medway River Trip is the perfect way to get an introduction to barge sailing, whilst taking in the historic sights of the upriver Medway.
Sailing from Chatham Maritime Marina, there will be plenty to see as the barge heads up river towards Sun Pier, passing Upnor Castle (scene of the Dutch raid of 1667), the Copper Rivet Gin Distillery, Chatham Historic Dockyard and the historic vessels contained within this vast museum.
A Thames sailing barge is the ideal platform to experience these sights from, with plenty of deck space and a comfortable hold to explore. There used to be thousands of barges on this stretch of river and now there is only one.
You will be invited to lend a hand setting the sails and are welcome to take a turn at the wheel – a rare chance to handle a large vessel under sail.
Once aboard, refreshments are available to purchase, including hot and cold drinks, a selection of coastal beers, kent wines and local spirits.
Please choose a date and time and book your Medway River Trip today.
