The narrowboat is the modern version of the cargo vessels that travelled the canals before the railways. Now these boats contain every creature comfort and are available for hire across the UK and in Ireland.
These canal boats have modern kitchens, beds which can be left made up, heating, showers and toilets. They can sleep from 2 to 12 people.
A canal holiday lets you experience the locks to go up or down hill and travel through exciting tunnels. You can cross aqueducts over valleys and rivers - the most famous is 120 feet above the ground.
At 4 miles per hour a canal narrow boat holiday is often described as 'the fastest way to slow down'.
