Boat Trip

River boat trips through the picturesque Kent countryside, departing from Maidstone in a 100-seater passenger boat. The three hour cruises run during weekdays from April to October and go through to Farleigh Lock with either a picnic or fish and chips. Private day and evening charter also available. Licensed bar. All cruises must be booked in advance.

The Kentish Lady departs from the heart of Maidstone’s historic area and travels at a speed which allows you to take in the beauty of the countryside. The commentary will points out some of the interesting castles and palaces, pumping stations, bridges, churches and villages along the route. Different seasons bring changing scenery and wildlife on the river, so no two trips are exactly the same.

At weekends and school holidays the Kentish Lady runs one hour round trips (one way available) between Maidstone town centre and Allington Lock. These do not need to be booked in advance but please check our website to confirm, as sailing subject to weather conditions.

The Kentish Lady’s moorings are easily accessible and wheelchair friendly. There is coach drop off point about 200 metres away and disabled parking in Palace Avenue, next to Maidstone Carriage Museum. Alternatively a very easy place to park is Lockmeadow Car Park, cross the footbridge and walk along the river path.

The Kentish Lady also run a small café next to their ticket office. It is a sunny waterside position with tables and chairs, with drinks, cake and ice cream. There is a bar on board the boat which is popular with evening bookings but also provides teas and coffees during your trip. If you are looking for a meal or stylish dining then the Embankments Restaurant moored next to the Kentish Lady can offer an extensive menu.

Weekend sailings to Allington Lock now running every weekend until Christmas subject to weather and river levels.
