Chester & Cheshire
based "Jacaranda" narrowboat welcomes you aboard to experience
a fun and relaxing break away from the pressures of work and family life
as you take a leisurely cruise along Britain's inland waterways. Be amazed
by the variety of British countryside, villages and towns you pass through,
observe the local wildlife, visit canal-side pubs and restaurants, meet
other boaters and be reminded of our rich heritage as you work through
the system of locks en route.
From our base near Tattenhall in Cheshire on the Shropshire Union canal,
you will be able to cruise to the historical city of Chester with attractions
such as Europe's biggest zoo (www.chesterzoo.org),
horse racecourse, the historic "rows" and Cathedral. Travel
further north to the National Waterways Museum based in Ellesmere Port
(www.nwm.org.uk) where you will discover
the history of the canals and life of the original 'canal boat families'.
Travel south through Cheshire, Shropshire and even North Wales via the
Llangollen canal or take the Middlewich branch to the famous Anderton
Boat Lift (www.andertonboatlift.co.uk).
Whatever your destinations, be assured of a warm and friendly welcome
from us as you begin your holiday on our privately owned narrow boat.
