There is nothing quite like a holiday on Britain's Inland waterways. Enforced relaxation, while drifting along at no more than a few miles an hour, enforced activity as you come to a flight of locks. Camaraderie when you meet other boaters, friendliness 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 endless, city, town, village and country, wide canal, narrow canal and river. Every bend brings forth some new feature. You can never see it all, no matter how many times you return. But why worry? Boating holidays are for relaxation, for unwinding from every day pressures, for doing what you like, when you like.
Two thousand miles of tranquil waterways, threading their way through some of Britain's most beautiful and unspoiled countryside, offering a haven for wildlife and an insight into our industrial heritage. A network of waterways taking you to the heart of major cities, with all the entertainment and leisure facilities that they provide.
