Magna Carta

The 8-passenger Magna Carta is one of the finest and most luxurious vessels cruising the British Isles. She has a special ambience created by combining a traditional barge hull with fittings in fine mahogany, outstanding teak and oak. All staterooms are equipped with hair dryers, ample hanging and drawer space, television with DVD and comfortable beds with the finest cotton bedding. The upper deck is home to an air-conditioned saloon with tinted picture windows offering the finest panoramic views to three aspects. Four Italian leather sofas provide extremely comfortable seating adjacent to a fully stocked bar. And last but certainly not least, guests will be indulged with the most exquisite dishes delivered from the professional galley.



If you are looking for a truly unique cruise experience, the Magna Carta is the way to go. Built-in in 1936, the vessel is a traditional barge hull transformed into an 8 passenger hotel barge, refitted with modern design and convenience in mind. The interior displays exquisite mahogany, teak and oak woods with sport picture windows and stylish furniture in the upper deck saloon. The outdoor sundeck has lounge seating and a spa pool.

You will not miss your modern amenities as many are featured on the ship. The interior has air conditioning and under floor heating. Each of the four full width suites include en-suite facilities, colour TVs and DVD players. Eight bikes are brought on each journey, allowing guests to take bike or walking trips along the tow paths.

Regional specialties served aboard the Magna Carta include salami of guinea fowl with wild mushrooms, rack of lamb with aubergine puree, sweet potatoes and spinach and breast of duck with blackcurrant sauce. Meals are paired with French and New World wines, and the cheese board serves Red Leicester, Caerphilly and White Cheshire.
