Easy, cheap & a very enjoyable way to travel. Highly recommended. So much nicer to get to the station this way but drops off at various points. A great way to use the river.

If you have time, and would like to avoid buses or taxis, this is a wonderful way to travel. There is a ferry point close to Bristol Temple Meads station, a regular timetable of boats and stopping places at various points.

The ferry boats are a bit loud not desgned for any comfort... but they get you around avoiding traffic, give a different view of the city and it's just a good way to spend 45 mins if the weather is Ok.

Long boat with seating, cheap and cheerful but gets you where you want to go. Used it to travel from Harbour Quay to SS Great Britain.

Great way to get to the other side. a little spicy but worth it. We used it to get to one end of the harbour then went back to our original destination. Very fast

It's not expensive, prices vary from around £1.50 to about £4.00 depending on how far you go and if you want a single or return fare. See the Bristol ferry website for details. Hope that helps!

As others have said - don't understand the question, if it is one even! Read the reviews if you wish to know more (and maybe check what you post!)
