Horse Drawn Barge Tiverton
Horse-Drawn Barge, Tiverton Canal
Now one of the last remaining Horse-Drawn Barges in the UK, a trip on the Tivertonian offers a truly unique and memorable experience of yesteryear for you and your family to enjoy! The fastest way to slow down on a traditionally painted wide beam barge.
Our most loved and popular trip is a 2 ½ hr return, where the barge travels for 1 hour to East Manley, then turns around and moors up, allowing you the opportunity to take a short walk to see the aqueduct, (designed by Brunel's team of railway engineers), or talk to the horse as he rests for a while under the shade of a tree.
During your special journey, you hear memorable tales, anecdotes and historical facts about the Horse-Drawn Barge and the Grand Western Canal. There is often 2 minutes silence... where the peace and tranquility of travelling by Horse-Drawn Barge can be fully appreciated.
The fantastic design of this Horse-Drawn Barge, means it matters Not what the weather decides on the day of your trip, . . Large sliding picture windows can be raised or lowered. Up, to keep warm, snug and dry or Down to create an open-air atmosphere on those fine summer days and evenings.
