Such a fantastic morning... fresh breezy air, along the canal... fantastic local history offered and it was so interesting 🧐. My children really enjoyed it and waving to walkers and joggers. A great experience. Great clean toilet facilities, comfortable seats and we even purchased homemade jam 😋 I know where to go in future for postcards of Marple & souvenirs too, all for charity. Looking forward to booking an evening trip soon. Thank you New Horizons Canal Boat

The staff who run this service are what makes the trips so very special - they are all amazing - Peter the skipper and all the volunteers make everybody feel welcome and go out of their way to be helpful and informative. We have been using New Horizons Canal Trips for a few years and we never fail to have the best day out - the most relaxing day with the best crew. Thank you to New Horizons.
