The canals are, at the most, only a few hours travelling from
your home and your canal boat holiday begins as soon as you arrive at one of our
boatyards. By comparison, the struggle of going overseas through crowded
seaports and air terminals.
Having settled in your
canal boat and started your cruise under
friendly instruction, a canal holiday gives you relaxation with a
real difference. Steering your canal boat and working the locks will absorb
everyone’s interest, whilst the ever changing scenery and abundant wildlife
will fascinate you. Moorhens, grebe, coot, heron and kingfisher have all
made the canals their haven.
Built some 200 years ago the canals formed the basis of
the transport system that started the industrial revolution. Now, long
forgotten by industry they have reverted to the quiet waterways which take
you back in time offering you a canal boat holiday experience never to he forgotten.
Stopping when you wish
on your canal boat holiday, you have the freedom to visit
castles, museums, country houses and parks which are close at hand and, of
course, the many canal-side pubs awaiting your pleasure. Meeting people from
all walks of life at the locks and pubs also makes this a friendly and fun
