Narrow boats – usually only found in the UK.
The Narrow Boats
The Old and the New
The Little Boxes
Great looking boats, would love to board them..
Yes. Long and thin and peculiar to the UK where our canals are narrower than mainland European canals. We have an extensive canal network which used to be used by industry for shipping goods. Now the canal network has been restored and is used by people for leisure. One of the best ways to see the UK – usually far away from the busy roads.
Would love to travel them!
You can! There are companies who hire narrow boats out all over the UK. A great holiday.
Oh cripes, that would be so incredibly awesome to travel them!
Our boat is similar but twice as wide……much better suited to mainland European canals. UK canals, by and large, narrow.
