Charter Bluebell for friends and family

Do you have a special occasion to celebrate or are you looking for a fun, new way to spend time with friends and family?


Why not charter our narrowboat Bluebell for a private party of up to 12 people?


Prices start from £90 for a 2-hour cruise.


We supply driver and crew, tea, coffee and biscuits. You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks.

Cruises start from Port Buchan in Broxburn. In 2 hours you can travel to the Lin’s Mill Aqueduct and back or, in the opposite direction, to Winchburgh and back.


Recent private hires have been for a themed pirate party, children’s birthday parties and by local scout and walking groups. We have also worked with the council's Education Service to provide trips for local schools.


Please call us to discuss your individual requirements.

The Bridge 19-40 Union Canal Society is a registered charity (SC023110) run solely by volunteers and supported by donations and income from events and boat trips.

 The Bridge 19-40 Union Canal Society is part of The Big Splash, an appeal to help support the many small waterway-based charitiesin our local communities to ensure their survival during these unprecedented times.




Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, and the difficulty in maintaining social distancing on a narrowboat, we regret that we are still unable to offer boat trips in 2021. We can still be contacted by telephone, email or via our facebook page. 

Please follow us on facebook for updates on the current situation and canal news in general.
