At 90p crossing the harbour to the SS Great Britton has to be the bargain trip of Bristol. Great friendly service, if one is full just a 5 min wait for it to return

Brilliant company organising boat trips around Bristol harbourside and they run the cross harbour ferry too. Weekend trips go to Beeses and Lock and Weir but highly recommend them as well for groups and work outings. The crew are fun!

Hi, the cross harbour ferry runs every minute or two. If you are on the side it isn't just wave at them. It's open 7.30am until 6.15pm from Monday to Saturday and from 10.30am until 5.30pm on Saturday and Sunday. It costs... More

Thank you for this, the only Number Seven boats operating after 6-0 pm are private hire boats.
