Kennet and Avon Canal Boat Hire

The Kennet and Avon Canal offers some of the most scenic boating holidays. It links Bristol in the West to the River Thames in the East, going through some delightful Somerset and Wiltshire countryside settings including the Southern tip of the Cotswolds and historic towns such as Bradford-on-Avon and Bath. The Canal passes through the 29 locks at Caen Hill near Devizes, which was one of the most advanced engineering achievements of the Canal period.
