Hotel Boat Cruising

River Cruiser on River Severn

Luxury Hotel Boat Cruising

Edward Elgar approaching Lincombe Lock near StourportLuxury hotel boat operator, English Holiday Cruises, recently launched next year’s programme of cruises along the River Severn and Gloucester to Sharpness Canal, visiting a wide range of world-class tourist and heritage attractions en-route and proving that you don’t have travel to the Rhine or the Danube to experience an authentic river cruise holiday.

Passengers can select cruises from between two and six nights on board the ‘Edward Elgar’, a 22-berth, four-star, continental-style hotel boat that journeys on Britain’s biggest river, the river Severn, between Sharpness in Gloucestershire and Stourport in Worcestershire, from April through to October.

The Edward Elgar has recently been completely refurbished and re-equipped and she is now a very luxurious river cruiser with comfortable beds and en-suite shower rooms in all cabins. Traditional English meals are prepared on board by a resident chef and served in a spacious, climate-controlled saloon with wines, beers and soft drinks provided free of charge at lunch and dinner.
