Every year we are delighted to welcome many visitors to the boats. Holiday makers come from all over the UK, but also many travel from the other side of our planet and arrive in Devizes, at the heart of Wiltshire for an English adventure on a canal boat. We really enjoy hearing about your travels across the thousands of miles you have travelled to arrive at the wharf. Sometimes this is a relaxing part of a longer tour. Sometimes you have flown back to your birth-place to visit family and friends. Sometimes, you really just want an English holiday afloat to explore our picturesque landscape from the cosy comfort of White Horse Canal boat.

We are well connected with the antipodes with many relatives having emigrated there. Indeed David, the owner of White Horse Boats, is half Australian himself and is always delighted to welcome you aboard and hear any news from his father’s homeland.

At White Horse Boats we aim to give you a very competitively priced holiday aboard a clean and well-appointed narrowboat. Normally hirers bring their own bedding to minimise costs, but we realise that this is utterly impractical if you have flown from abroad. Therefore we offer all of you who have journey from afar complimentary bedding and towels. This is our gift to you to welcome you aboard and thank you for choosing us.
