Canal Boating Holidays in the UK
UK canal holidays are a civilised adventure; civilised because you carry all your home comforts with you; and an adventure because around every bend there is something new and surprising to discover and enjoy with your family and friends.
First time boaters are given a friendly welcome by everybody on the canal.
But you won’t be inexperienced for very long, for within a short time you will be gliding serenely around the first bend into a whole new and different world.

The specially designed boats (narrowboats) are easy to handle and of course, everything happens at a relaxed pace. Click here for details.
You will be given all the instruction you need by the holiday company and will soon head off on your very own adventure like a seasoned boater. Your boat will be fully equipped with every modern amenity, so self-catering becomes a pleasure, but there are also many canalside pubs, once essential ‘staging posts’ for the working boats of the last century, which are now popular watering holes for holiday boaters; and most offer great food at reasonable prices.
The Waterways are preserved for the benefit of all by The Canal and Rivers Trust who are committed to the conservation of the waterways and their environment.
