The 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 gently by-wonderful!

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.

We have described all our cruises in this brochure, together with some more information about our holidays. But if you want to know more, or require help with which cruise to choose, or any other aspect of booking a holiday with us, then please do not hesitate in telephoning us on the number below. We will usually answer the telephone in person, but if we are unavailable, please leave your name and telephone number on our answer machine and we will get back to you as quickly as we can.
