Try a canal boat – a new way to discover cities

For most visitors the first view they get of a new city is through the window of a car, a train or an aeroplane. There is another way though to see a new city for the first time and that’s from one of the many canals that link most of the cities in the UK.

The canal system is part of the inland waterways, a network of manmade waterways, over 2200 miles in total length, which were built over 200 years ago. The canals were the Industrial Revolution’s veins, allowing raw materials and goods to course between factories and consumers.
