Barge Holidays in England are perhaps the most relaxing way to see the country. There is a wide choice of routes for you to take, some incorporate city centres, and some pass through sleepy villages, so you can tailor make your break to suit yourself. Barge holidays can also be as long or as short as you wish. The wide variety of routes can also be suited to short breaks, just a few days, to longer holidays of 2 weeks or even longer.
Taking Barge Holidays in England are also a really cost effective way for groups to holiday together. You can hire barges for couples to barges that can sleep up to 8 or more and as you pay for the barge itself and not per person, the more people who join you, the cheaper it can be.
Routes in Cheshire can take in Chester and Manchester which is perfect for those who want to do a little shopping or sightseeing while on their holiday. Manchester is also perfect for anyone who wants to take in a show as there are several large, well known theatres in the city. Routes in more rural areas such as the Norfolk Broads of Oxfordshire take in small villages and hamlets which add to the relaxed laid back feel this type of holiday should create.
Barge Holidays in England are a joy and navigating England’s waterways by barge is a wonderful way to see the countryside. It can give a whole new perspective to the local sights and offers more freedom than other touring holidays. You can decide where and when to stop, which sights you want to see and start travelling again at a time that suits you. There is none of the usual time constraints that would normally be associated with touring holidays including meal times and rest times.
