The canals of UK meander across some of the most beautiful countryside, and past pubs, cottages and warehouses. Here you will discover the Britain most tourists miss on their canal barge holidays.On your first canal barge hire holiday, you will be 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 canal barges are easy to handle and of course, everything happens at a relaxed pace. You will be given all the instruction you need by the canal barge hire company and will soon head off on your very own adventure like a seasoned boater.Your canal 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 boaters on canal barge holidays, and most offer great food at reasonable prices.

We rate personal choice very highly - choice of cruising routes from one of our bases; choice of hire periods, including Short Breaks, one and two week holidays; choice of no less than four different start days and a remarkable choice of boats which are fully equipped for parties of two to ten people. We want you to enjoy the special experience of a canal barge hire holiday and so we try to make your canal barge holidays booking as all inclusive as possible whilst at the same time offering genuine flexibility.
