Brayford Belle review
The Brayford Belle is a tourist cruise boat in the heart of Lincoln, Lincolnshire. It goes from the waterfront down at Brayford along a canal.
The Brayford Belle is a lovely looking two storey boat. It’s perfect in any weather as there is shade up on the top deck. Or you be completely enclosed, and heated, down on the bottom deck. That said they are a fair weather boat and only run from Easter until the second weekend in October. If it is a particularly bad weather day then they do not run.
It is always an idea to ring ahead if they are your sole reason for visiting Lincoln. It’s also worth checking that they’re not fully booked for a group booking. The boat sails 5 times a day starting at 11 am with the last sailing time at 3:45 pm. Each cruise takes around 50 minutes.
The boat is boarded at the end of a pontoon next to Wagamama at Brayford Waterfront. There is a very handy car park at Lucy Tower street or it’s a few minute walk from the train and bus station. Please bring cash for your ticket(s) and if you want to purchase any refreshments. They have hot and cold drinks plus snacks. There is also a toilet on board.
You start the cruise alongside some of Lincoln’s relatively newly built townhouses and University. Then as you journey along the canal you start to see a wide variety of houseboats. There was even a houseboat that was sinking into the depths of the canal. Let’s hope no one was living there! The boat trip takes you out into the countryside where you can still peek glimpses of the great City of Lincoln in the distance.
