WELCOMES YOU ABOARD
emphasis on our cruises is relaxation. We want to create for you a quiet
calm oasis away from the cares of everyday life. If you wish to have a
walk along the towpath (easy as the towpaths are on the whole level and
the boats glide along at 3 mph), then that is what you must do. If you
feel like lending a hand with the locks so you work up an appetite for
lunch or supper-great! Wind the paddles and send thousands of gallons of
water rushing into the lock chambers - very exhilarating! Or simply sit
and daydream and watch the ever changing scenery, fascinatingly glide
From March through to November we cruise the delightful scenic inland waterways of England and Wales. These canals link many famous places such as Oxford, Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Chester, and Llangollen, the beautiful Peak District and the spectacular countryside of North Wales. Sit back and relax on the boats as we take you gently through a wonderland of nature and tranquillity.
