If you are looking for something completely different to do this Christmas or New Year why not book a Canal Boat Holiday. The canals are quiet and peaceful during the winter months and there is something very special about waking up next to water on a clear frosty or snowy morning. Imagine cruising on Christmas morning with the sun rising slowly over a snow covered landscape, or spend New Years Eve in one of the many Canalside pubs.

Book a Winter Canalboat holiday from our marina at Worcester, and be a stones throw from the lovely shopping centre and Cathedral and enjoy the festively decorated streets in Worcester's City centre.

For the Rugby enthusiast book a canalboat from Rugby, the home of Rugby football and walk along the Pathway of Fame, a unique tour which celebrates the history of the game. Bring the children to Santas Grotto where they can get an early Christmas present.

From our marina at Gayton you can cruise to Milton Keynes, a shoppers paradise with Christmas Markets, local shopping and retail parks there is something for everyone. The vast range of shops, markets and superstores makes a visit an experience not to be missed. If you want to do a spot of ski-ing this Winter grab your skis or snowboard and escape to Xscape for lots of festive fun.

Snow at Market HarboroughWhen you book one of our canal boats from Market Harborough, book your Christmas meal at the lovely Waterfront restaurant in the marina, and stroll into the lovely market town of Market Harborough for a few last minute presents.

Our canal boats are insulated and are all fully heated so you will be cosy warm no matter how cold the weather outside. With a on board entertainment system on your canal boat why not bring a supply of DVDs to watch or your favourite romantic movie, or a Christmas CD to listen to while you cruise the canals.

The galley is fully equipped to allow you to cook a full Christmas lunch with turkey and all the trimmings just do not forget the crackers. If you would prefer Christmas lunch cooked for you then the pubs on route are at their most inviting at Christmas time with a friendly welcome, inviting open fires and delicious food.

The kids will love playing traditional Christmas games with you after your turkey lunch and if you all need to let off steam have a a gentle stroll along the towpath.
