Godalming Packetboat Company

Pulling the past into the future.

Attention:  We have received a lot of inquiries regarding the re-opening of the Godalming Packetboat Company following the Covid 19 lockdown.

We have reluctantly decided that The Godalming Packetboat Company will remain closed for the rest of 2020.

This is due to the particular nature of the attraction, the lockdown, social distancing, on the overcrowded towpath, and the effect that the pandemic has had on the coach industry, all this has hit us particularly hard, and after consultation with other similar attractions.

Sadly we feel this is the only solution at this time.

We do thank everyone that has been with us.

Come and join us aboard Iona the perfect way to cruise the National Trust’s unspoilt River Wey & Godalming Navigations.

Iona will be pulled by one of our heavy horses along both natural river and a canal section and through one of the oldest boat locks in the country.

Travel quietly in the time honoured way as generations of river boatmen have throughout history.

We do private charters to provide the ideal outing for clubs, organisations, senior citizens, wedding receptions & corporate events.

We can provide refreshments so please contact us to discuss your requirements.

We also run regular public trips.

All trips run from Godalming Wharf ( opposite Sainsbury’s in Godalming Town) between Easter to the end of September. These usually start at 2pm and last approx 2 hours and the maximum capacity is 46 passengers.
