The MV Conway Castle is the largest passenger vessel on the River Severn, and is licensed to carry up to 300 passengers. Although based in the picturesque town of Upton upon Severn, cruises operate both to Tewkesbury and Worcester.
Severn Leisure Cruises is a family-run business, operating since 1979, and offers a wide variety of day and evening cruises with the emphasis on a high level of customer satisfaction from a professional team.
Daytime cruises include the popular Waterbus service to Tewkesbury for its Wednesday market. Afternoon tea cruises originated on board the Conway Castle, and take place many Tuesdays and Thursdays – advance booking is essential. We also offer occasional sailings to Worcester. Group rates are available on these cruises.
Sunday Lunch with varied entertainment Cruises continue to be one of our “best sellers”. These are an extremely good value way of enjoying the best the Conway Castle has to offer.
The Party Nights are also very popular, with Pudding Party Cruise, Summer Pig Roast, Caribbean Steel Band, Midsummer Dinner Party and August Bank Holiday Dinner Party cruises.
Many evenings are reserved for private charter for special occasions such as birthdays & anniversaries. We also host numerous prestigious corporate parties on board, and have even ‘launched’ a new car on the front deck.
Conferences and Sales Presentations are particularly successful as they have a truly captive audience once on board. Wedding Receptions too are hugely popular, and brides who are looking for something a little different can choose from a wide range of menus and styles of boat decoration for their special day. Entertainment can vary from a Caribbean Steel Band to a Casino or Blues Band. Good food is a special feature on board the MV Conway Castle for all private, afternoon tea & supper cruises.
Tickets are available for party evenings with live bands & discos, as well as buffet and hot supper cruises with restaurant style dining for small groups & with a varied programme of entertainment.
Dinner Party Cruises are especially busy and have appealed to many smaller companies looking to entertain guests with something different.
There is easy access on board at Upton upon Severn, with no steps. Wheelchairs can be accommodated with pleasure, but advance notification is essential as only a limited number can be taken on any cruise. We regret it is not possible for electric wheelchairs to gain access.
Severn Leisure Cruises pride themselves on their long record of customer service, & will be delighted to discuss ideas & requirements for the new season – please make an appointment to ensure we can share the time your party deserves.
