Boat Trip – Wonderful excursion along the river tweed.

Here at Paxton House it is the only riverside venue that provides boat trips up the River Tweed, with a running commentary from the skipper you get all the history and information about the Netting and riverside lodges as you glide along the river taking in the wonderful view.

The trip goes all the way up to Horncliffe taking you underneath The Chain Bridge, giving you a view of the bridge you would never see from anywhere else.

Our boat trip times do change every month due to the tides, but times are updated every month on our website and on social media.
