When waterway tourism gives you the opportunity to discover another facet of England

We’ll receive you in the town of Stone and teach you the basic manoeu­vres to steer your house­boat. It’s worth lin­ger­ing or a while in the town’s shop­ping streets before pick­ing up your house­boat. Stone is the ide­al start­ing point for a water­way cruise in Eng­land, since you can set off for a few days or weeks, so get ready ! Here, as with every­where else, the locks are an inte­gral part of the day-to-day plea­sures you’ll expe­ri­ence aboard. If you choose to nav­i­gate the Cauldon, you’ll also enjoy the joys of the lift bridges and tun­nels, mak­ing your water­way cruise even more attrac­tive. Don’t miss the old­est boat lift in the world by vis­it­ing Ander­ton.

From natural riches to the historic treasures of England

Trav­el through the 4 Coun­ties of Shrop­shire, Stafford­shire, Cheshire and West Mid­lands to admire a series of beau­ti­ful Eng­lish nat­ur­al land­scapes. Get away from it all as you embrace the char­ac­ter­is­tic roman­ti­cism of Strat­ford Upon Avon, the birth­place of William Shake­speare, or won­der at the impos­ing cathe­dral of Coven­try. You’ll have no short­age of ideas for attrac­tions to enjoy dur­ing your water­way cruise. If you’re trav­el­ling with your fam­i­ly, you should also plan a stop in Chester, where you’ll be able to take your whole crew to spend a few hours or a full day at the city’s famous zoo.
