The Deal

Setting off from the refurbished Trencherfield Mill, once a mainstay of the Northern cotton industry, guests will leisurely cruise down the Leeds and Liverpool canal. Adults can relax with a glass of mulled wine and mince pie, while children try to contain their excitement. Upon disembarking at Wigan pier, visitors will head straight to Santa's grotto where youngsters will be able to hand their letter to Mr Clause personally.

Choose from the following options:

  • £4.50 for one adult or one child

  • £18 for family of four

The Merchant

Kittywake Canal Cruises operate cruise tours and waterway experiences on their 36-seater canal barge, the Kittywake. Dubbed by the company as 'the boat that rocks', the barge has a well-stocked bar, a bow lounge allowing for searching views, and a full-heated cabin. It can be hired out for parties and events while gliding over the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.

As the boat now has a sound system a recording telling you interesting facts about the places you were passing. Not on all the time but just to give you an idea of where you were

Jean T. · 22 January 2014
What an excellent trip! really enjoyed our trip on the Kittywake! Lovely friendly staff, and thanks Sandi for being so informative and knowledgeable! Only one complaint and that is the hotpot was delicious but served luke warm which resulted in a lot of the passengers leaving it, which I felt was such a shame!
