Come along to one of our Open Days

On Sunday 23 April 2017 we’re running open day events at six of our bases, offering newcomers the chance to try canal boating for free.

Our events are being held as part of Drifters’ National Open Day, which is supported by the Canal & River Trust.

The taster sessions will include free trips on skippered narrowboats, as well as boat tours and holiday discounts. 

No advance booking is required. The events will open at 11am and close at 4pm.
