Grand Union Canal, boat hire & rental.

Grand Union Canal cruising is designed for every member of the family.

Boat hire brings the English countryside alive with the excitement and adventures of narrow boat holidays.

The English canals offer a peaceful, pleasant and unspoilt view of the English Countryside away from every day life, bringing one in touch with a new unexpected remote part of the British Isles away from main roads and railways.

You can skipper your own boat on a 3 day short break or up to three weeks or more.

Even if you have no previous narrow boat hire experience you will be surprised just how easy it is to become a confident skipper.

One of the many delights of cruising the canals is the wide choice of routes available.

In England and Wales there are over two thousand miles of rivers and canals that can be navigated aboard our boats.

All our narrow boats are purpose built for easy and responsive handling and if you have any doubts over any aspect of canals & cruising we will do all we can to assist.

Latest prices are now available and we already have many bookings.

All our hirers are taken for a free tuition cruise by one of our experienced pilots at the start of your boating holiday and shown through a lock. Instruction continues until you are confident of how to handle the boats. This will insure a most enjoyable and memorable boating holiday.

We also send novice hirers a VHS video or CD rom which covers all aspects of canals and cruising, plus a copy of "The Boaters Handbook"
