This can sometimes be extended if you are celebrating a special occasion.
All the cruises on the Alfred Leroy take you southwards from Guildford, travelling on a beautiful, peaceful stretch of the River Wey and Godalming Navigations. You’ll pass water meadows and at St Catherine’s, the golden sands which some say gave Guildford its name (Old English: Guilden Ford) and the Pilgrim's Ferry point (used for centuries by Canterbury Pilgrims).
Saturday evening dinner cruises as well as Sunday lunches - click here for details.
You will pass through St Catherine’s Lock and then turn either at the winding hole, for shorter trips, or at Stonebridge Wharf, where the Wey joins the old Wey and Arun Canal (currently under gradual restoration by volunteers, who hope to reinstate the link to the South Coast). The River Wey & Godalming Navigations were built between 1653 (Guildford-Weybridge and the Thames) and 1764 (Guildford -Godalming). Cargoes included gunpowder, made in Chilworth and transported by water for safety. Nowadays the National Trust look after this ancient waterway.
On board you will find seating at fixed tables raised on platforms with a narrow central aisle. Tables 4, 6, 8 & 10 seat up to 6 people (4 for luxury menus) and tables 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 & 9 take 4 people. A licensed bar and good value wine list are available with all menus except Teatime Favourite. The wine list is printed on the back of the menu leaflet. The Alfred Leroy is available for groups of between 25 & 49 people, except for luxury menus which have a maximum of 40. You may book for fewer but will be asked to pay for 25.
Our caterers, P&S Catering, have designed menus for all tastes and pockets.
