Photography on your canal holiday:

Taking a canal boat holiday with us provides photographers a great opportunity to take some really great photographs.

Firstly, because you are in a naturally beautiful environment, there is no additional car travel needed to reach a good spot to take a photo. We all know that early morning is one of the great times for photographs.
