A typical day will begin with early morning tea or coffee served in your cabin if required. Full English breakfast will be served at 8:30 am, followed by an update of the day’s route and places of interest.

The days cruising will have begun by 9:30 am, with morning coffee and homemade biscuits served on the move at 11:00 am ( dependent on locks, tunnels etc.).

We will moor for a leisurely lunch at approximately 12:30 pm. Setting off for the afternoon’s cruise or visit around 2:00 pm. afternoon tea and homemade cake will be served on the move about 4:00 pm.

By 5:00 pm we will have moored for the evening, allowing time to explore the area before dinner, which will be served at 7:00 pm. Following coffee the evening is yours, to enjoy the onboard facilities or walk to a nearby pub. On a summers evening sitting on the front deck stargazing is a lovely way to spend some time.

A hot bedtime drink is available if requested.

Although we have called this a typical day, there is really no such thing, every day aboard Periwinkle will be different. However one thing is certain, every day will be enjoyable, varied and full of interest.
