Day hire and boat trips
There's something magical about spending time by the water - the peaceful atmosphere, the beautiful surroundings, the sights of the wildlife and the passing boats. What better place could there be to enjoy a memorable holiday or a relaxing afternoon?
If the call of the waterside appeals to you, but you don’t have time to spend a week or more on a narrowboat holiday, then fear not! You can experience the tranquil pleasures of canal cruising by hiring a self-drive boat for a day – or even an afternoon.
Cruising along the canals is always a calming experience, but you can take this relaxation one step further and enjoy a peaceful voyage without doing any of the hard work yourself by going out in a trip boat.
Trip boats operate from many of the most picturesque spots on the waterway network – some offering the chance to go back in time and enjoy a voyage on a horse drawn narrowboat. Find trip boat operators using our search facility on this page or go to the canals and rivers section of the site and search using our interactive map.
