About us

A & G Passenger Boats Ltd (formally Aitken Grange Cruising Company) is a family company established in 1996 and operating in the heart of Sheffield. LB Hardfeet, currently the only licensed hospitality vessel cruising along the Sheffield and Tinsley canal, was proudly built to our own specifications in 2008 to accommodate up to 70 guests. With low level windows for excellent views of the canal’s industrial past and green open spaces, heating to keep you cosy in winter, a small but well stocked bar and a full restaurant kitchen enables us to offer a quality service whatever your hospitality needs. Inclusivity if one of our core beliefs, we were therefore delighted to be able to include a wheelchair accessible toilet and a platform lift to enable ease of access for our less able guests.

Our staff, are all enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the canal’s rich history and are quite happy to impart that information should you care to ask. Each staff member has been trained to carry out their roles competently and efficiently with your safety and wellbeing in mind.

Safety: we take boat safety seriously and hold both MCA passenger and DSSM certificates. We are registered with the local environmental health department and hold the relevant sale alcohol license and at least one member of staff on your cruise will hold a current first aid certificate. In addition, we are members of the British Marine Federation.
