- canal boat trip recommendations
The pub round the corner from us do boat trips
Not been on one yet but they;re doing a midweek trip next week I quite fancy, 1pm minibus to Macc then a cruise back up to Marple. If the weather’s decent it will be nice, take the big camera and get snapping and so on
The food in the pub is really nice too, you could treat her to a pub meal after. It’s VERY close to Emmy’s excellent B&B if you REALLY want to spoil her

the wife’s birthday is coming up in a bit and she’s been on about wanting to go on a canal boat so I thought id do something about it.
I’ve looked at a few things but they all seem to be booked up, often 12 months in advance.
does anyone know of any where that might have a shorter waiting list?
thanksPosted 6 years agogonetothehillsSubscriber
If it’s just a short trip you’re after, there’s a boat goes from Bollington on the Cheshire Ring canal, heads north to Poynton and back – about 3 hours or so.
The best thing is it’s a floating restaurant with massive portions of good and tasty home-made grub, it’s licenced and they’re really nice people too. Takes up to 12 people, I think.
I’ll dig out a link if you’re interested?Posted 6 years agorOcKeTdOgSubscriber

Are you looking to hire a barge or go on a cruise type thing?
are you going to be carrying goods? or do you mean a narrowboat?

try http://www.alvechurch.com/ then you can completely put her off by doing the 58 locks from worcester to tardibigge, it’ll only take about 5 hours, unless it’s busy, fun though
oooh alvechurch, that’s a blast from the past.
I should point out that when I was younger my dad was a canal nerd so I’ve chugged down most of england’s waterways but not for 20ish years.
I know a lot of canals have reopened in this time so I’m just after general pointers.Posted 6 years agoKing-ocelotMember
This place was on one of my old canal side cycle routes. You can hire the ‘narrow boat’ (thanks Rocketdog) for the day, the route has very little in the way locks, it’s not a very pretty route though.Posted 6 years ago
