“A must visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Thanks to the volunteers who carry on the required works to open and manage this facility this place adds a small extra to the person visiting Linlithgow. If you are lucky and have time one should do the canal tour leading all the way to Falkirk Wheel.

“Great afternoon on the canal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

A family group of us hired the Leamington for a four hour self-drive. We were welcomed by one of the volunteers who then took us out to show us the basics before he jumped off and we headed on towards the Avon Aqueduct. We made it back in good time and carried on eastwards to The Park Bistro before returning the boat. It was a great day out for all and very relaxing to be travelling along the canal. The volunteers were really good at the centre and it is great value at £60 for a four hour midweek hire too!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Great day spent out on the boat on the onion canal. Boat was perfect, no issues. The staff were so attentive and helpful before letting us loose on the canal. Travelled east along union canal, had a BBQ at mooring point near Broxburn. Thanks again to all the staff!!
