One hour harbour tour pricing 

Standard Tour: £148

On our regular Educational tour, you can have a commentary by the skipper or crew.

Skippers and crew who give commentaries are knowledgeable about the history of the harbour, and you will get an informative and interesting talk as you explore Bristol Harbour.

For very young children, we can offer a fun tour about boats, bridges and wildlife!

 

Harbour Tour Extra: £170

If you are looking for a more in-depth study, we can offer you a tour with a little bit extra.

Our ‘Extra’ tours are led by a presenter who will interact with your students by asking questions to encourage them to engage with their surroundings.

There might be artefacts to handle, short recordings of first-hand accounts, or a quiz with prizes.

If you choose an ‘Extra’ Trip, you will be sent the relevant curriculum-related resources that can be used to prepare the class, and follow up learning after the visit.
