When you cruise the inland waterways you discover the secret heart of the country. You'll be amazed at how many places you can get to by boat, and how many different things there are to see and do along the way. You'll go through busy cities and quiet countryside, along tiny canals or wide rivers, even lakes. There are places to stop and explore, and you'll learn about locks, bridges and tunnels.

Travelling slowly means you can get up close to all kinds of wildlife and you'll see far more than you ever would by car The best bit is that you don't have to go home at the end of the day because you'll have your home with you!
