City Dock Tour

See the City of Bristol from the water and hear about the history of the Harbourside and surrounding areas

City Dock Tour

A 60 minute guided tour exploring Bristol's fascinating maritime history. Our entertaining and informative commentary is the perfect way to introduce your group to Bristol's rich maritime history and the origins of the City.

This trip works really well with a visit to other Harbourside attractions such as the SS Great Britain, MShed, We The Curious, Cabot Circus or Underfall Yard to name a few. Please note that this cruise does not provide views of Clifton Suspension Bridge.

We can depart from any public landing stage in the Floating Harbour. There is good access for coaches to drop off passengers at the Bristol Packet Office next to the SS Great Britain, and a limited amount of coach parking in the Maritime Heritage Centre (SS Great Britain) car park, or on Cumberland Road nearby.

We cannot guarantee that there will be space for your coach to park and all parking is subject to the standard tariffs set by Bristol City Council.
