Kennet and Avon Canal Boat Holidays

Caen Locks

The Kennet and Avon Canal offers one of the most scenic boating holidays. It links Bristol in the West to the River Thames in the East, going through some delightful Somerset and Wiltshire countryside settings including the Southern tip of the Cotswolds and historic towns such as Bradford-on-Avon and Bath. The Canal passes through the 29 locks at Caen Hill near Devizes, which was one of the most advanced engineering achievements of the Canal period. See the photo above.

Here are the Boating Holidays that we have available on the Kennet And Avon Canal.
