Cruise the waterways of the world in your very own floating home. Drift through busy thoroughfares or along peaceful towpaths, chatting with dog-walkers and waving at envious cyclists. Move at your own pace, picnicking on the water or stopping off in pretty riverside cafes and picturesque pubs. House boating is one of the most relaxing, satisfying ways of getting from place to place: with everything you need under one narrow roof, you can just switch off and steer. Have fun navigating locks, bridges and tunnels in your compact new home – and when you're finally moored, don't forget to enjoy the friendliness of the hospitable boating community. House boating's a fun, flexible holiday activity, that will keep you entertained for a sunny afternoon, a fortnight's cruise, or maybe even a lifetime.
