Explore Lancashire from the water with Canal Cruises Lancashire

What can I expect on my Canal Cruise? 

  • Stone Bridge & Swing Bridges (If you are lucky the skipper may ask for help in opening them!)
  • Windmills, Wharfs & Mills all dating back to the 19th century
  • Peaceful & tranquil countryside
  • Abundance of Waterfowl – Ranging from Ducks to Swans to Geese, and there has even been sightings of an elusive Kingfisher!
  • Commentary from an experienced skipper telling you about the history of the canal and snippets of information to wow your friends

Being on the water is a different world from the one most of us are used to. As soon as you step foot on ‘Alfie Bhoy’, that soon becomes clear. 

Pathways are replaced by stretches of serene blue, a still mirror of the sky above; cast your gaze further into the distance and your vision soon becomes filled with the beauty of the Northern English countryside.  

Whether you want to keep things private and spend a few hours cruising along the canal in familiar company, or you’re up for meeting some new folks on your narrowboat adventure – the option is there for you to decide!

Grab a bite on the Lancashire Canal 

And closely following all those brilliant views, comes the food. From savoury feasts to sweet treats, the delights being served up on the narrowboat are a cause for celebration! 

Can’t turn down a homely meal? The Hotpot Cruise is perfect for you. Or are you a morning bird just as much as a champion for all things breakfast? Then the Breakfast Cruise might be the one for you. 

Some of the best bites on board Lancashire Canal Cruises

But if you’re headed out with the family, we don’t think you can beat the Afternoon Tea Cruise. Pick at a smorgasbord of finger sandwiches and scones slathered in jam and cream, chatting away with your family the whole time. 

It’s often all too easy to fall into a pattern where you fail to see the everyday beauty around you. 

On a family voyage out on the canal, away from the normal routine of life, these everyday moments are impossible to miss.  

From the natural world sliding by outside your window, to the joy you see in your little one’s face as the engines thunder to life and you set sail – these are the kinds of memories you’ll look back on in years to come with a smile plastered across your face.
