    A boating holiday provides a flexible holiday where, traveling at a leisurely 3 miles (or 3 locks per hour), you cannot help but relax and unwind. It is the sort of holiday that can appeal to everyone, and is a great way to escape from the pressures of modern life, traveling through the beautiful countryside by day and mooring for the night near a friendly canal side pub or a peaceful stretch on the towpath. Fresh air leads to healthy appetites and many of the canal side pubs will also serve food, which gives Mum a break too.

    This is a relaxing holiday for all the family, and fascinating for those interested in beautiful countryside, architecture, scenery and our industrial heritage. Here at Heritage Narrow Boats, you can hire a boat for just the day, or 3, 5, 7 or even two weeks.
