Cruising the Worcester and Birmingham Canal.

Cruising the Worcester and Birmingham Canal on a canal boat hire from Brook Line Narrowboats is an ideal way to relax.  The narrowboats for hire are well equipped with all modern facilities.  Brook Line Narrowboats is a family owned company who offer tuition to anyone who has not handled a canal boat before. They are based just north of the city of Worcester, surrounded by the green countryside.

Once aboard your narrowboat you have a choice of where to cruise. If you have 3 nights only for your break you could decide to travel from Droitwich to the cathedral city of Worcester and back. This will allow you to see a mixture of wonderful views of open fields and farmland as well as several interesting buildings in the city. The benefit for those who have not been on a narrowboat before is that several miles are covered before the need to tackle your first lock. Dropping down through the Worcestershire countryside you are soon in the historic, cathedral city of Worcester with all its land based attractions.

This impressive cathedral stands proudly above the River Severn and can trace its history right back to the 12th century! If you visit, its well worth taking part in the cathedral tour which runs twice a day from Monday to Saturday during the summer. The trained cathedral guide will talk you through the most important aspects of the cathedral, such as its architecture, monuments, and stained glass windows, and will also explain why it is that the current tower is the third one in the cathedral`s history!
