For an entrance with a difference, arrive by ship at The Quays or in the heart of Manchester by traditional narrow boat.
Opened in 1894 to enable the merchants of Manchester to avoid using the Port of Liverpool, The Manchester Ship Canal is a unique inland waterway for "big ships" and can provide a scenic route to Manchester from the Irish Sea. Charter a vessel from the Port of Liverpool and your guests can discover Manchester's ingenious industrial heritage as part of their arrival.
Canals were at the heart of the development of industrial Manchester; today the regenerated narrow waterways provide a relaxed route to arrive in Manchester. Travel is possible from all over the UK via the national canal network which once formed the backbone of industrial Britain. Narrow boats accommodating up to 50 people can be chartered with ease and provide guests with an enjoyable element of an inventive experience.
