The Matthew along the Avon Gorge

Fish & Chips Trip with Pirate Folk Music

Enjoy a fun cruise on The Matthew as she sails around Bristol’s historic Floating Harbour, with fish & chips and pirate folk music!

We'll be sailing around Bristol's historic Floating Harbour on this two-hour trip, enjoying fresh fish & chips from a local supplier, accompanied by pirate songs, traditional folk songs and a bit of comedy, theatre and audience participation from the popular local pirate band, Piratitude – you may recognise one of the group from our Captain Barnacle events!


These trips are very popular, so early booking is advised.


Booking your ticket

Please select your preferred date and time. Once you have booked and your payment has gone through, you will receive a booking confirmation via email almost immediately. You don't need to bring this with you – we generate a passenger list so you just need to state your name on arrival.

If you haven't received your booking confirmation email, please check your junk/spam email folder. Please get in touch with us as soon as possible if you still don't see it – email the office at info@matthew.co.uk.


Got a voucher?

You can input your code when you buy your tickets. This step will appear once you have inserted the names of your guests. If you have two or more voucher codes, please call the office on 0117 927 6868 to book.


Planning your visit

Please arrive around 15 minutes before your trip start time to allow for boarding. The ship leaves promptly – we cannot wait for latecomers. Bearing in mind we are in central Bristol, you will need to allow plenty of time for your journey, and to find suitable parking if you are driving.

We cannot give refunds or change your tickets to another trip if you arrive late and miss your sailing.
