Our short break holidays aboard 'Brindley' are ideal as an introduction to the world of narrowboating. You can enjoy a break away cruising the 36 miles of historic Bridgewater canal. Our short break options are either Monday - Friday or Friday - Monday. 


There's so much to see and do with a plethora of great places to eat, drink and relax as well as great activities suitable for all of the family.  


All holidays depart from our base at Bridgewater Marina in Boothstown, Worsley. A typical 3 night/ 4 day return cruise will get you out through Worsley, Barton, Sale, Altrincham and on through Dunham Massey, Lymm, Grappenhall and Stockton Heath.


The Bridgewater Canal is totally lock free suitable for leisurely cruising.
