Whether you’ve been canal boating before, or are a complete novice, a holiday on the inland waterways is an unforgettable experience for all. Even if you’re local, you’ll experience the towns and countryside you think you know from a completely different perspective. Taking life at a slower page (4mph) allows you to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Members of our British Wildlife turn up unexpectedly on your journey, and you’ll get to relish the joys of life on the canal and the friendly community on the cut. A sense of separation from the hustle & bustle of urban life is a given, but if you do fancy some time in a city or town then you’re not too far away. Whatever you decide, you’ll be creating memories with your family & friends to last a lifetime.
The slow-paced nature of narrowboats will give you a newfound appreciation of your surroundings. You might be lucky enough to catch a glance of the elusive blue Kingfisher, or find yourself engrossed in hooking the plentiful carp that live in the waters of the canals. Avid ramblers will find that the canals offer miles both on or off the towpath with hidden entrances into woodland trails and meadows. The sense of adventure and mobility is often an appeal to younger boaters looking for a change of scenery and an escape from the hustle & bustle of metropolitan life. Of course, if Britain’s extensive line-up of canalside pubs and restaurants is more your style, you’ll find no shortage along this stretch of the Grand Union.
