About

Sail along the idyllic and tranquil River Dee on a ChesterBoat luxury showboat with cruises running daily and early evening on board The Lady Diana, or the Jackie.

Departing The Groves, take time to relax on a half hour cruise along the Dee. The cruise will take you through the suspenion bridge, past Grosvenor Park and the Earl's eye, following the long sweep of the 'Meadows.'  You will immerse in the beauty of the flora and fauna, the outstanding properties and gardens that adorn the riverside. Step on board, take time to relax and enjoy a drink from our fully licensed bar.
