Due to maintenance work on the Basingstoke Canal from February to May 2017, our canal barge will not be available.
On the picturesque Basingstoke Canal, which runs through the Hotel's Estate, guests have the opportunity to enjoy a memorable experience on a luxurious 17-metre (56-foot) canal boat. Available for hire from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm, the boat offers endless possibilities no matter the weather, with heating and air-conditioning ensuring a comfortable on-board temperature year round.
Just the two of you? Why not enjoy a candlelit night cruise? With its log-burning stove and intimate feel, the boat provides a unique setting for an unforgettably romantic evening.
With family and friends, savour a meal for up to eight around the galley table. Our home-style menus are sure to provide a fun experience, with your every need being taken care of by your attentive Four Seasons crew.
For larger gatherings of up to a maximum of 20 people, the canal boat provides a wonderful view for cocktail and canapé receptions.
The boat also makes a wonderfully original Hampshire meeting venue, inspiring creative thinking in a boardroom setting for eight, or a theatre setting for up to 15.
Half-day hire is for three hours and full-day hire is for six hours. For more information, please contact the Hotel directly.
