The cruise will pass through locks and bridges largely unchanged since their construction over 100 years ago and allow you to discover some of the region’s architectural sights. Opened in 1894 this is one of the last major canals to be constructed in Britain, built to enable sea-going ships to reach Manchester. The ferry docks at Salford Quays where we board the coach for a short transfer to the Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel in the City Centre. Relax and enjoy an included dinner at the hotel.
