Newly-awarded 5 stars from VisitEngland

Edward Elgar

English Holiday Cruises now offer a voyage that’s just a little bit different on their 4-star hotel boat, Edward Elgar. It’s three times seven: visit Seven Wonders on a 7-day cruise along the River Severn.

This new cruise covers the entire length of the Severn Navigation, sailing from Gloucester all the way to Stourport then back down river to Sharpness on the Gloucester-Sharpness canal. The countryside along the way is glorious and there are tours or visits to Worcester Cathedral, the Severn Valley Railway, Upton, Tewkesbury Abbey, Gloucester Docks, the barge graveyard at Purton and the Wetlands Centre in Slimbridge.

As with many hotel boats this cruise holiday includes a complete package of hospitality with 3 traditional meals every day, catering for special diets, beers/wines at lunch and dinner, tea/coffee all day, guided tours, live entertainment, free WiFi and more besides.
