Over two thousand miles of navigable inland waterways, threads their way through some of Britain’s most beautiful and ancient countryside, offering havens for wildlife and a rare insight into the nation’s industrial heritage. This network of waterways also takes you to the heart of major cities, with all the buzz and excitement that they provide.
There is nothing quite like a canal boat holiday on Britain’s Inland waterways. Friendship when you meet other boaters, or when you tie up at the pub for a drink or a meal. A holiday of contrasts, taken at a slow pace. The variety is seemingly endless with city, town, village and country, wide canal, narrow canal and river. Every bend brings you to some new feature. You can never see it all, no matter how many times you return.
