Found 5th May 2008
Gang of us would like to go out on a barge for a day, drinking. with a designated "driver" of course (luckily we have a teetotaler for such events lol)
Firstly is it possible to hire a barge for the day, do we know if this is possible?
Would be in the south wales region of avon/midlands.
Do you have a driver for the barge?
anything im missing out on.

walkers brit trips do these

You can hire a barge for the day at The Boat Station, Shepherd's Patch, Nr Slimbridge. On the road to Slimbridge Wetlands Trust, past the Tudor Arms Pub on the left and just as you go over the canal the Boat Station is on your right. They don't give you a driver. Sorry I don't know the charge. It is on the Gloucester-Sharpness Canal.

The Tudor Arms Pub does fantastic food and you can also get lovely food at The Boat Station, which also sells alcohol. Nice day out.

Follow the M4, at Junction 20 take the M5;
M5 Junction 13 or 14 follow the signs to the 'WWT Wetlands Centre, Slimbridge';
Turn off A38 at Slimbridge roundabout, go through main village;
After 1.5 miles turn right after Tudor Arms Pub into carpark, 30 yards before canal bridge.

This sounds like a fun me good ideas for the summer

This sound a fantastic idea, funnily enough my parents who haven't had a holiday for over 10 years have just booked a barge for a week later in the year. Will suit them as they can't walk far etc.
