If you are looking for a day out with a difference, taking one of our day boats out for a cruise along the Shropshire Union is the perfect way to enjoy quality time with your family and friends and create memories that you will talk about for years to come.
Hiring a narrowboat for the day enables you to experience the joys of cruising one of England's finest waterways. Our 3 boats are custom built for day cruising and are available to book throughout spring and summer.
