Canal Boat art enthusiasts can visit an exhibition in Manchester next week to see the works of renowned artist Rob Pointon.

Rob spent a year travelling the canal system on his Narrowboat where he was inspired by the beauty and tranquility of our canals and rivers.

The work Rob produced during this year is now being exhibited for sale in Manchester and other locations with a percentage of the proceeds being donated to the Canal and River Trust.

Rob Pointon is an artist of international acclaim whose clients include HRH The Prince of Wales.

If you love works of art then believe it or not many can be found beside our canals and waterways.

If you book a Canal Boating Holiday from Alvechurch Marina you can cruise the Coventry Canal and follow the amazing art trail.

Coventry has a five and a half mile long outdoor art gallery which runs alongside the canal making it Britain's longest waterside art gallery.

Sixth form students from King Edwards College, Hansworth have joined forces with British Waterways and HSBC to brighten up the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal in central Birmingham.

A lock side wall has been transformed by the students with a mural that they have designed and painted onto the unusual canvas.

There are a host of art galleries to visit in Britain and a Canal Boat Holiday gives you and your family an opportunity to visit them.

Many of them have free entry which is brilliant if you are on a budget.

Places you would not normally visit are to be discovered on a Canal Boat Holiday so take time and enjoy some of Britains art galleries.

London is home to many galleries including The Tate Modern and Tate Britain, Saatchi Gallery, The Hayward and The National Gallery and can be reached from a Canal Boat Holiday booked from Aldermaston.
