About Us

Visitors to the National Waterways Museum can take a trip up and down the Shropshire Union Canal.

Climb aboard our canal boat Centaur for a boat trip on the Shropshire Union Canal. This 30-minute boat trip takes you through a fascinating industrial landscape criss-crossed with past and present transport systems. Your tour guide will unfold for you the stories that lie behind the passing bridges and quaysides and bring to life the changing fortunes of the canal and its people.

And you don't have to visit the museum to take a boat trip. Pop along just for the boat trip if you like. You'll be welcome to visit the café and shop too.

Boat trips on Centaur are a great way to slow down and experience canal life - life at 4mph.

Tickets: Adults and Concessions £1.50, Children £1

Times and availability - These vary each day. We recommend you call us (0151 355 5017) on the morning of your visit to check availability and times that day.
