Summer 2021 at The Matthew!

Posted on 2/07/21 by The Matthew of Bristol

With the school summer holidays almost upon us, we're looking forward to a great summer of trips here at The Matthew!


What's happening this summer?

We will be running Harbour Trips throughout the summer holidays, and we've just added four new Avon Gorge Cruise dates to the website for August. And if you're looking for a Fish & Chips trip, we are currently taking bookings for our previously announced dates up until the end of July – we'll let you know as soon as we've confirmed our August dates.


Scroll on down for details and links to book your tickets...


Don't forget, entrance is free (donations are gratefully received, though!) if you want to come for a visit, explore the ship and have a chat with our volunteers. We are open from 10am to 4pm, Tuesday–Sunday throughout the summer (when we're not out on a trip, of course!).


We look forward to seeing you soon,
The Matthew team
