Boat Hire in the UK

UK Boat Hire

Worcester and the River Severn, Discount Boat Hire

UK Boat Hire are the largest of all the operators on the canals, rivers and inland waterways of England, Scotland and Wales.

They have over 200 boats for hire based at no less than 11 sites across the UK.

This gives customers a wonderful choice ranging from the verdant Kennett and Avon canal running through Wiltshire, linking the River Thames to the River Avon in Bristol, - to the newly restored Forth and Clyde canal which links Glasgow to Edinburgh in Scotland.

With such a wide choice of areas, they can offer a holiday to suit absolutely everyone. You can have a relaxing almost lock free cruise along the spectacular Llangollen canal which winds its way into Wales across two stunning aqueducts, or select a more energetic route that takes in more locks such as the Worcester Birmingham canal, or The Pennines through Yorkshire.

working the locks is childs play

UK Boat Hire have won many awards over the years for their 'Green' approach to the holiday and there can be no doubting their commitment to ensuring that everyone has a enjoyable and safe holiday. Every effort is made to help newcomers to the canals, from the detailed and helpful pre-holiday information pack to the detailed handover of the boat at the start of your holiday. You will receive full instruction in the boat and all the facilities as well as being shown the operation of the canal locks.
