Hire a canal boat for the day

It's a little way out of London, but Lee Valley Boats at Broxbourne (25 mins from Liverpool Street) you can hire a canal boat for the day for £125 (between up to eight people).

Canal Boats are easy to operate, and there is always something different to see, from tunnels to industrial heritage, wildlife and other boats. Once you get out as far as Broxbourne, it can also feel positively rural at times, with fields and nature close up, and always the chance to sneak back inside the cabin for a cup of tea or a bite to eat.

The day boats carry 8-12 people and there are also longer breaks available if you have a bit more time (and money).

For more information, give them a call on 01992 462085, or check out the website.
