Thank you so much for reviewing our new waterbus, the Sir John Knill, here. We want to set up it's own TripAdvisor account as soon as possible. It is also electric and wheelchair friendly, so we are very proud of it.

Thank you for this great review. We really enjoy including the children when crewing the boat, it helps give them a greater understanding of life on the canal and fun.
