Easter Deals on UK Canals: Waterways Holidays

Waterways Holidays, the one-stop shop for UK canal holidays, has a raft of savings – up to £569 – on narrowboat hire from a range of start points across the UK.

“Easter marks the start of the busy hire season on Britain’s canals,” says managing director Nigel Richards, “and there are some fantastic deals on weekends, midweek breaks and full weeks to suit all school holiday dates”.

With discounts, a week’s hire of a narrowboat starts at under £1000, with Oscar 2 on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal now £850 for seven nights from 13 or 20 April (saving £149), while Snowdrop on the Grand Union Canal is £950 (saving £105) for seven nights from 13 or 20 April and Firefly on the North Oxford Canal is now £995 (saving £320) for a week starting 6, 13 or 20 April.

The boats above sleep up to four and, as with all craft offered by Waterways Holidays, are fully-equipped for self-catering.

The biggest savings are on Princess Class boats based at Bradford upon Avon on the Kennet and Avon Canal, at Chirk in north Wales, in the Peak District and at Acton Bridge in Cheshire. Seven nights hire starting 13 April is now £1330, saving £569 for a four-star narrowboat with flexible accommodation for families of up to six people.

For holidays starting Easter Saturday, offers include Duchess Class boats based at in Worcestershire or the Peak District, with seven nights from 20 April reduced by £279 to £1120.
