Family Days Out On Your Narrowboat Holiday

Canal boat holidays have long been a family tradition for many British families. Providing you with the freedom to explore at your own pace and choose your own destinations means that it really is a holiday that can be enjoyed by the whole family!

Cruising the waterways and spending time on the boat is a huge part of the fun on a narrowboat holiday, but it doesn't have to be just about that. So, for those days where you fancy something a bit different (or the kids just need to blow off some steam on drier land!) you'll need to know there are plenty of other things nearby to keep them entertained. 

Whether you want to head off the beaten path to discover historic castles and an awesome biking trail, or you spend a few days visiting the local museums, parks and zoos, your sure to find something to please them all on a narrowboat break with Chiltern Canal Boat Holidays.

And to help make planning your perfect family canal holiday super easy, we've rounded up some of our own favourite family friendly activities along our holiday routes. Enjoy!
