The Barbara McLellan trip boat is based at the wharf in Bradford on Avon, just above the lock. The boat can take 40 passengers seated at tables and has an open bow area where passengers can sit out and enjoy the weather and the views. There is a licensed bar on board, selling tea, coffee, soft drinks and alcoholic drinks plus a small range of bar snacks. There are toilets on board.

We can take a limited number of wheelchairs on board and any passengers with mobility difficulties can use the powered lift to board and leave the boat. However, the on-board toilets are not disabled-friendly.

The Barbara McLellan operates public trips on a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, as well as being able to offer charters for private groups of up to 40 people.
