The Monmouth and Brecon Canal in south Wales is arguably the most beautiful stretch of waterway in the UK. This thirty three mile canal waterway is completely isolated from the rest of the canal system and it is often very quiet and peaceful, even at the height of summer. It starts at the Canal Terminus at Sebastopol and ends at the Brecon Canal Terminus. To complete the full journey from one end of the canal and back will take a full week but there are a number of shorter routes available that only take a couple of days. Boating holidays on the Monmouth Canal can be tailor made to suite your needs and availability.
