Northamptonshire canal boat holidays


TV presenter Julia Bradbury will be attending this year's Crick Boat Show and Waterways Festival, at Crick Marina in Northamptonshire.

Julia Bradbury, presenter of Canal Walks, Countryfile, Watchdog, Railway Walks, Wainwright Walks and many others, will spend the day at the show, giving talks about how her walking life started, signing books and meeting people.

Julia said I am delighted to be visiting the Crick Boat Show and Waterways Festival, where the canal world converges in the Northamptonshire countryside to celebrate our wonderful network of inland waterways and provide a great day out for all the family.

I thoroughly enjoyed exploring some of the Uks canals for my Canal Walks series, including the Kennet and Avon, Worcester and Birmingham and Llangollen Canals.

I look forward to sharing some of my memories with Crick Boat Show visitors.

This years Crick Boat Show is being held from 25th to 27th May on The Grand Union Canal.

As well as a huge gathering of Canal Boats there will be a wide range of activities and entertainment for the whole family.

A range of special activities and educational areas for children will encourage the young visitors to leave the show knowing a little bit more about our inland waterways.

There will be a chance to talk to all the experts and to look around the Canal Boats.

Join in the fun in the village of Crick and take a haunted canal ghost tour.

Canal Boat Holiday guests wishing to visit the Crick Boat Show and meet Julia Bradbury should book their Canal Boat from our base at Union Wharf in Market Harborough.
