Afternoon Tea was invented by the Duchess of Bedford in 1840, by which time the Union Canal was already a busy route for haulage and commuters. So why has it taken until 2017 to combine the two?! Because now, the Union Canal is a fantastic place to relax and unwind with a peaceful cruise ideal for sampling the delights of our Afternoon Tea. Step away from the bustling Edinburgh streets and enjoy the most unique Afternoon Tea experience in the city – aboard the Lochrin Belle. Let yourself relax and unwind on a gentle cruise along the Union Canal whilst sampling a tremendous homemade selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes provided by the ‘Inside Out Chef’.
Choose from a selection of teas and smooth filter coffee as you watch the city fade away and the scenery change. With limited spaces available, please book early to avoid disappointment. (We can accommodate vegetarian and gluten free diets, please inform us at the time of booking)
Monthly boat cruise.
Costs: £25 pp
