For a memorable New Year why not book a Canal Boat Holiday and visit one of the many towns or cities on the canal system.

Join in with the locals at their unique New Year celebrations.

If you are visiting Birmingham on your Canal Boat Holiday then take a stroll around Gas Street Basin and then onto the Bull Ring Market.

  Try to be in Victoria Square at midnight for a spectacular firework display.

If you happen to be in Stratford-on-Avon on New Years Eve take in a performance of Measure for Measure at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Shakespeare puts moral and religious double standards on trial in this dark and fascinating exploration of virtue as political currency.

A visit to Warwick is a must if you are cruising on the Grand Union Canal on your narrow boat holiday and why not chance your luck at the New Year race meeting at Warwick Race Course.

If you get the chance to visit Bath then make sure you look to the night sky at midnight.

As the Abbey bells toll twelve the historic city centre streets will be lit up by a fabulous fireworks display to begin the New Year.

If you are in Bristol for the New Year then go along to the Colston Hall and enjoy the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in their Viennese Concert.

You do not need to travel to London for a big wheel experience book your New Year holiday from Anderton and take a trip on the big wheel in Chester.

If you are cruising to Leicester on your Canal Boat Holiday then join in the fun at Conkers where a party is being hosted for the whole family.

Enjoy a glass of bubbly or fruit punch on arrival, gala buffet and specially catered childrens buffet, disco and children's entertainer.
