Canal Boat Tours from Manchester
By Viator, February 2014
There are a number of options for canal boat tours from Manchester, with the city located on the Peak District Canal, one of England’s most scenic canal ways. A 2-night private tour is the best way to explore, with varying routes navigating the historic locks and aqueducts along the Peak Forest, Macclesfield and Ashton canals. You’ll get to eat and sleep on board, taking in views of the famous Peak District National Park and learning how to drive the narrowboat and operate the locks.
Not convinced about life on the water? Opt for an overnight cruise around the city instead, taking in sights like the Deansgate Locks, Canal Street and the Old Trafford football grounds, then set out for England’s oldest canalway, the Bridgewater canal. Even with just one night, you’ll still get a feel for life on board a narrowboat, docking overnight in an authentic English village and taking turns steering the boat.
