Lunch River Cruise

Starting from Brightlingsea Harbour, sit back and enjoy the cruise along the picturesque River Colne to Wivenhoe. With its narrow streets and quaint buildings, Wivenhoe makes a great day out. It has been home to many famous people over the years, including ‘Miss Marple’!

Included is the return boat trip and main meal at the 300yr old Black Buoy Inn, which is steeped in maritime history including becoming a meeting place for a range of maritime folk, perhaps even pirates!

See the harbour's river cruise boat pictured below. Passengers are required to be able to step down onto the boat and once at Wivenhoe be able to step up onto the jetty.
