We offer different types of canal boat hire at Union Wharf marina. Choose from holidays on the exclusive Boutique Narrowboats or the family-friendly Gosling. Or if you’d prefer just a relaxing day out, our sister company offers day boat hire.

Canal boat holidays and breaks

Discover our luxury canal boat holidays. Whether you’re after a mid-week celebration, a long weekend break or a full week on the water, we’ve got something for you.

Our canal boat breaks are perfect for couples looking for a romantic 5 star retreat. We also have a robust family and pet-friendly boat, suitable for groups of up to 6 people.

A canal boat getaway is not something many people have experienced, so it might be daunting, but don’t worry – we will make sure you’re fully trained on your canal boat before we send you on your way.

Take a look at the different canal boat holidays we have available here.
