Hotel Boat Cruises on the waterways of Northern England & Scotland

The waterways of Northern England and Scotland are largely man made canals because they have hills to climb, and rivers are difficult to navigate when they tumble down slopes!

The Forth and Clyde Canal in lowland Scotland still has the Kilsyth Hills to cross, and in Northern England the Pennines and Peak District provided many challenges for the canal builders. 

So on your Hotel Boat cruise you can expect wonderful upland scenery and engineering masterpieces such as Standedge Tunnel on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, Bingley Five Rise locks on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and the modern wonder, Scotland's Falkirk wheel near the junction of the Union Canal and the Forth and Cyde Canal.
