Boats in Canals & Rivers

Boats in Canals & Rivers


There is no better way to discover the hidden charms of our beautiful landscapes than on a canal boat holiday in the UK. You'll enjoy the freedom that canal boats offer as you drift dreamily through unspoilt countryside, perhaps stopping off to enjoy a meal at a waterside pub. There are many canal boating routes to choose from, each with its own special delights and all offering a wonderful boating holiday. And because Hoseasons are the leaders in canal boat hire, you're bound to find the boating holiday to suit you.

Canal boat hire gives you the choice of a plethora of holiday experiences. With its thrilling scenery and numerous historic sites, many regard the Cheshire Ring as the finest of the canal 'rings'. The Kennet & Avon Canal passes through lovely countryside from the Avon at Bristol to the River Thames, via the elegant city of Bath. And for canal boat hire on a network of waterways stretching from Coventry to Oxford, that also encompasses the Thames Ring, head to the Oxford and South Midlands Canals.

Canal boat breaks on the Heart of England Canals mean you can meander through six beautiful English shires, from Tewksbury to Stafford, taking in a host of historic sites and attractions on the way. A canal boat holiday on Yorkshire's Waterways offers breathtaking views as these waterways thread their way through stunning landscapes. And for sheer drama, the Llangollen Canal's glorious countryside and two spectacular aqueducts are canal boating attractions that are hard to beat.

Owned and cared for by the National Trust, the River Wey is a tranquil waterway running through the heart of Surrey. And a boating holiday on a River Thames cruiser or canal boat has everything you could wish for - historic, scenic splendour with a wonderful social atmosphere. The Cambridgeshire Waterways offer enchanting cruising on 150 miles of peaceful waters winding gently through the Fens.

Take a canal boat holiday on the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals, and you can cross Scotland from Glasgow in the west to Edinburgh in the east, passing over three spectacular aqueducts and the amazing Falkirk Wheel.
