Pirates on the Stour


This event is held annually on the August Bank Holiday Monday at The Granary Tea Room in Sudbury. We offer FREE boat trips for young pirates (under 12 years old) when accompanied by a fare paying adult. Come and join our pirate crew for the day, me hearties!

There is no admission charge and no pre-booking before the event. There is a bankside ticketing system on the day meaning that you are able to book places on trips running approximately every 30 minutes. Buoyancy aids are provided for all child passengers.

The Tea Room offers a simple menu of sandwiches, homemade cake and drinks. Enjoy our riverside location and relaxing with friends and family whilst you wait to board the boat.
