We are looking for a 'short-break' canal boat experience, and find there are so many different options!
Will be travelling down from Scotland after touring there and will probably leave rental car in Edinburgh meaning we will need to use public transport (train?) to canal start, then travel on to London.
Not worried what area, just want more 'country' than 'town'! Rural countryside with some small towns or villages, pubs and some interesting spots to see along the way. (And not too many locks!)
I notice most short breaks involve a certain distance travelling then a return trip. Does it seem a bit 'the same' travelling back when going so slow?
Many thanks to anyone who can share experiences or offer any recommendations. I have visited the canal websites.
