Button Boating Skippered Day Experiences

Fancy a day out on narrowboat but don't want to have to steer or operate locks?

Sit back and relax. Button Boating has you covered as you explore the peaceful countryside and beautiful wildlife through the Soar Valley from a waterways perspective.

We provide skippered day experiences on our comfortable, cute privately run narrowboat "Button" along the beautiful River Soar, Wreake and Grand Union Canal navigations between Birstall and Zouch. All trips start at Mountsorrel, you choose which direction you want to explore. We take up to 4 passengers for half or full day excursions.

Your experienced and qualified skipper can also provide supervised hands-on tiller and locking experience as part of your day, if you wish to get involved and 'learn the ropes'!

Delicious tea and cake hampers can be ordered to make your day extra special, these are all available gluten-free.

Book yourself a relaxing day or buy a gift voucher for someone towards a future booking.

Please visit our website for details or search Button Boating on Google, Facebook or Instagram.
