UK Widebeam Boat Holidays

 

Widebeam Class 3W1

 

Rent a luxury widebeam boat to discover Southern England

 

Sit back and relax on a luxury widebeam canal boat holiday. Explore the Kennet & Avon Canal from this Southern England base, located halfway between Bath and Reading (only 2 hours drive from London). Stretching over 87 miles, this canal is renowned as one of the most beautiful locations in the UK for a canal boat holiday, passing through some spectacular landscapes including West Berkshire and the rolling Cotswolds. It was built in the 19th century to link London with the Bristol Channel. The Kennet & Avon Canal is a very special waterway, which has been awarded a protected cruise-way status securing the future of this historic waterway.
