  • Canal Summary
    The canals and rivers of the UK stretch for over 2000 miles. Once mostly used to service the industrial centres, now they are used more for recreational purposes. You can explore these using narrowboats, luxury cruisers, and so forth, hired from the many boat hire centres around the UK. Whilst cruising around the canals, as well as admiring the scenery, you can also look out for various river wildlife, or stop off at pubs, restaurants, wildlife sites, villages, and so forth. Not to mention the experience of the bridges, tunnels, aqueducts and locks you navigate through along the way. Or for those who need even more stimulation, the former industrial use of the canals, means that the waterways of the UK also flow through some of its liveliest cities, London just being one example.
