The Preston Guild 2012

Preston Guild 2012

Canal Boat Cruises Team have been planning for various events throughout our calendar. One of the upcoming events which comes around every twenty years is going to be occurring this year which is extremely exciting.

The Preston Guild is a historic celebration which dates back to around 1179. It is the only Guild which is actually celebrated in the UK and therefore is an extremely unique event. This year the Preston Guild will be their first celebration within the 21st century and the first since Preston was granted city status in 2002.

It is only held once every twenty years with the city of Preston and it brings together residents, visitors, artists and businesses as well as various athletes and performers. The whole community gets involved with Preston Guild and with the Olympic Games being held in London it is a great chance for a whole range of people from around the world to get involved and experience some of the historical traditions of Preston.

With all eyes on England it is important that we showcase it off at its best and Canal Boat Cruises want to be part of this. We want to show off the Lancashire heritage and landscapes and what better way than to take a trip and sail down our British Waterways on one of our chartered cruises.

You will sail for three hours onboard Romance which is our cruising restaurant boat. Whilst aboard the fully enclosed boat you will be able to clearly see through the canal boat windows the picturesque scenery all around you. We will be going through various locks and providing you with lots of historical information.

Take advantage of our fully licensed bar and we will be serving you a delicious three course meal which will be cooked for you fresh onboard and all created from local produce from the area.

We are not that far from Preston City Centre, around 15 minutes and so if you are heading there to celebrate Preston Guild then please do ensure you come on a canal boat cruise with us and see some of the countryside and the scenery it has to offer.
