things to do in Peterborough - Ferry Meadows Boat Trip

What a glorious afternoon of sunshine to have had the wonderful opportunity of trying out the new electrically- powered ‘Wyndham’ boat trip at Nene Park Ferry Meadows, getting for its launch next week.

‘Captain James’ was at the helm of this lovely little boat on Overton Lake with Oliver telling us all about the details and future plans. You can have a ride on the lake next week and then it will be put away to reopen at Easter 2021.
The trip starts off at the jetty opposite the visitor centre where you will be able to sanitise your hands and put a life jacket on. There’s no requirement for wearing masks as you’re in the open air and there is ample seating space for keeping your distance both at the front and middle of the boat. You go round the island and then around the larger part of Overton Lake, returning back to the jetty for disembarking.
It travels at a slow 4 knots taking around 20 minutes for the trip, allow 30 minutes in total for preparation, getting on and off and settling in.
The boat will currently be taking trips of 6 people preferably in family bubbles for next week, so it’s a great idea for something different to do with the kids on half term.
“A superb ride which was so smooth it felt like you were gliding.”
“ Totally serene and the boat was so quiet you didn’t disturb the wildlife.”
You’ll be able to make private bookings for next year too: celebrations, sunset trips, dawn trips, afternoon teas… your boat trip awaits. Lots of ideas coming soon. If you want to book, visit their website where details will be going up soon for booking.
Nene Park – thank you.
