Holidays on Jubilee

We have three accessible canal boats that cater for holidays and day trips. 

New for 2022 to the Peter Le Marchant fleet is Jubilee - our brand new self-hire 60ft narrowboat. Jubilee includes a number of accessible features making her an inclusive and comfortable environment for many. Wheelchair friendly with a stern lift, she is designed and equipped to take up to 6 passengers, making her an ideal choice for families and groups wanting privacy and the freedom to gently meander the canals at their own pace.  If you wish to check the suitability of Jubilee for your group prior to booking, please speak to a member of our team.

We are also happy for you to arrange a visit to the base for you to assess if she is appropriate for your needs.
