Tiverton Barge Co, Tiverton

Tiverton Barge Co
Home to one of the last horse-drawn barges in the UK - Tiverton Canal
I always think if this is the last horse drawn canal boat it is something I must do! But take a look at the Tiverton Canal itself and you will realise that the whole area is fabulous...and unless you take a ride on the horse drawn canal boat, it's also free entertainment. We love how the Tiverton Canal Co have realised how lovely it is to have their staff dressed in traditional costumes. It all makes for a better, quirkier visit. Doesn't it?

Profile Description

Being 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!

This beautiful wide beam, 75-seater horse-drawn Barge operates to timetable from 1st April to 31st October with daytime public trips. It is also available for private hire during the day and evenings.

The Fastest Way to Slow Down!

The most loved and popular trip is a 2½ hour return where the barge travels for one hour to East Manley, turns around and then 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 will hear memorable tales, anecdotes and historical facts about the horse-drawn barge and the Grand Western Canal. There is often two minutes silence, where the peace and tranquillity of travelling by horse-drawn barge can be fully appreciated.

There is a bar on board so relax with a nice glass of wine or Beer whilst you travel along the canal imagining what life used to be like in olden times.

The whole Tiverton Barge Co canal experience is a must do. Hire bots and take a walk along the 11 miles of nature reserve.
