Canal cruises and dining

Hebden Bridge Cruises

Based on the Rochdale Canal at the Stubbing Wharf, Hebden Bridge Cruises offers scheduled cruises including Sunday Roast Cruises, Afternoon Tea Cruises, and even Pirate Parties for the kids.

Or you can charter your own cruise for any other event: gather your friends for a party or get your colleagues away from the office. All the catering is provided by the Stubbing's kitchen.


For more information about Hebden Bridge Cruises, call Sean on 07966 808717, or emailor go to the website.

Sean, Mary and the team at Hebden Bridge Cruises have a beamed craft, Gracie, named after Rochdale’s finest, Gracie Fields. The boat was built especially for the canal. Originally built for twenty, it now takes a maximum of twelve, so there’s room for all. Gracvie is equipped with small galley and bar serving soft drinks and copious amounts of tea and coffee.

For 2014, as well as our 40 minute Scenic Cruise, Afternoon Tea Cruise, and Sunday Lunch Cruise, we have included more options for you to create the perfect day out or a family celebration.

We are offering a fish and chips cruise on Friday lunchtimes, regular mid week and Saturday dining cruises, where you can indulge in a meal from the Stubbing Wharf's kitchen whilst you cruise.

You also have the option to charter our boat Gracie for that special celebration. For further information please visit our website at
