Win a trip on board the timeless Paddle Steamer Waverley

Date published: 31 Jul 18

Paddle Steamer WaverleyThis prize draw is now closed.

Experience the beauty of the Thames after dark in a unique way – aboard the famous Paddle Steamer Waverley, the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world.

Built in 1946, the Waverley sailed from Craigendoran on the Firth of Clyde to Arrochar on Loch Long until 1973. Bought by the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society (PSPS), she has been restored to her 1947 glory, boasting timber decks and towering funnels.

Just Go! Holidays is offering two lucky Silver Travellers (the winner and their partner) the change to experience the magic of the Waverley for themselves. Simply enter below for the chance to win this fabulous prize, departing 6th October 2018, which includes return coach travel from a local pick-up point*, an overnight stay in a selected 3 or 4-star outer London hotel with full English breakfast, and a River Thames evening cruise aboard the Paddle Steamer Waverley.

This nostalgic experience is the perfect way to see some iconic landmarks and take in the glow of London at night!

    It looks delightful, thank you. How often do we get the chance to visit things on our doorstep almost?

    London is such a beautiful city, yet we rarely get the chance to truly explore our wonderful surroundings. What a fabulous way to explore the Thames on a Paddle Steamer. It's like the Orient Express on water. I was looking for a unique and different birthday present for my best friend and this definitely ticks all the boxes.

    What a clever idea to present a different way to see London. Many people have seen lots of the sights of London but not so many have seen them from the water.
    It is likely that many more people will be interested in this and the novelty will get lots of bookings from people who might otherwise feel they have "seen it all".

    Waverley should really let us look around Edinburgh, Walter Scott and all that but I guess seeing the big city from the Thames on a D Day survivor has to be worth doing. Yes please

    I remember the trips on a paddle steamer as a child in the 50s from Southend to Margate. Would love to experience a trip again. So many memories.
