A look at holidaying on the best of British waterways. When James Brindley designed and built his first canal in the 1760s to transport coal to Manchester, had someone told him that in the 21st Century people from all over the world would be taking their holidays on his Sticking Ditches as his critics dubbed canals, it s fair to say the brilliant young engineer would have laughed out loud! /but this is precisely what has happened and today the British inland waterways are becoming an ever more popular holiday destination, as narrowboats transport visitors back in time, to experience a slower pace of life, while travelling through an unspoiled country landscape.
Travel into the heart of Britain s waterways and see for yourself why narrowboat holidays have enjoyed such a revival, as the stressed and strained from every walk of life search for peace and tranquillity, relaxation and escapism. Follow the course of a narrowboat holiday from planning through to confident navigation and lock operation. See the sights, walk the towpaths and take a peek into the secret treasures of the canals and rivers of Britain. If you re planning a narrowboat holiday, you ll be inspired, but should you prefer to enjoy the experience from the comfort of your armchair, sit back and relax, welcome aboard.
