The Horse-Drawn Barge . . . “A little bit of Heaven in Devon”
Being one of the last remaining horse-drawn barges in the UK, a trip on the “Tivertonian” offers a truly unique and memorable experience of yesteryear for you to enjoy!

The Fastest Way to Slow Down!
Their most loved and popular trip is a 2½ hr return where the barge travels for one hour to East Manley, turns around and then moors up, allowing you the opportunity to take a short walk to see the aqueduct (designed by Brunel’s team of railway engineers), or talk to the horse as he rests for a while under the shade of a tree.

During your special journey, you will hear memorable tales, anecdotes and historical facts about the horse-drawn barge and the Grand Western Canal. There is often two minutes silence, where the peace and tranquility of travelling by horse-drawn barge can be fully appreciated.
