    Combine this with a self created environment with, freshly prepared food from local produce consisting of a three course traditional Christmas menu, friendly service from our team and the unique experience of cruising along the Leeds Liverpool Canal from our base at Riley Green Marina. This all gift wrapped perfectly together really does make for a truly memorable christmas celebration.
