The Kennet and Avon Canal is actually a combination of interlinking rivers and canals which travel between Bath and Reading. This is a distance of eighty seven miles and will take around two weeks to complete. Of course, you need not do the whole route and you can hire a boat for a few days. This is a very diverse journey where you will pass through cities, woodlands and stunning countryside. Kennet and Avon boating holidays are great for families or for groups of friends.
If you complete the whole route you will visit the city of Bath with its Georgian architecture and Roman baths. You can also take an open top bus tour of the city and see all of the places of interest. If you want
a good night out stop off at Bristol and visit the many bars and restaurants. You will then pass through the rolling countryside of Berkshire and Wiltshire. The Bath Valley is considered to be the most picturesque section of the journey. The canal passes through woodland and over the aqueducts of Dundas and Avoncliff. Kennet and Avon Boating Holidays will eventually end up in Reading where you can visit the shops and also the ruins of an abbey.
The boats are very spacious and comfortable. They can sleep up to seven people and there are all the creature comforts you need to make this a very enjoyable holiday. There is a full equipped galley but if you fancy a break from cooking you can visit one of the many waterside pubs along the way. You will pass through a number of locks along the route and the whole family can join in and have lots of fun negotiating the boat through.
