We are delighted to be part of this beautiful landscape and give tourists and holidaymakers the opportunity to experience some of the Great West Way from the comfort of a narrowboat on the Kennet & Avon Canal. This is the ideal base to visit much of the stunning scenery between Bristol and London, we are located centrally and you can travel and explore from Devizes through Pewsey to Hungerford and even as far as Newbury. A holiday on an English Canal is will allow you so slow down to this relaxing pace away from the hustle and bustle of our modern lives.  For the historians amongst you you can discover how the canal sits within the landscape allowing trade and life to flourish along the water way, visiting The victorian engineering feat of Caen Hill Flight, the Heritage centre in Pewsey, Crofton Beam Engines and the Wilton Windmill. The brick pill-box hides along the canal are a solemn reminder in this special year of remembrance for all those who gave their lives during the wars.

We think that this stretch of canal is some of the most beautiful and if it’s an English adventure of discovery, then a holiday with us is the perfect place to start. Situated centrally in the North Wessex Downs with so many white horses, from here you can easily visit Stone Henge, ¬†travel north to the cotswolds, head west to Bristol and the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, or the Roman baths in Bath, or head east towards London and Windsor for a royal tour!

Whatever you choose you to do know you are in safe hands with us, relax in the comfort of a holiday afloat with White Horse Boats.
