UK Canal boat holidays


Wallace and Gromit are enjoying a Canal Boat Holiday on a Narrowboat at Gas Street Basin in Birmingham.

In a new advertisement for VisitEngland, Wallace and Gromit, with the support from the tourist boards of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are promoting a new 'Great Adventure' campaign aimed at inspiring people to holiday at home.

The organisation, which supports and promotes tourism in England, said Wallace and Gromit are wonderful ambassadors for holidays at home.

Merlin Crossingham, the creative director Wallace and Gromit are famous for having great British adventures and this time we hope that they can help inspire people to have their holidays in the UK.

The hapless inventor and his dog will be visiting some top tourist attractions and sees them morris dancing in front of Stonehenge, dressed as beefeaters at the Tower of London, taking a Canal Boat Holiday in Birmingham's Gas Street Basin and of course, searching for cheese at a day out at Cheddar Gorge.

The new advert will be seen on the television, in cinemas and across the internet.

Just like Wallace and Gromit you will experience thrills from start to finish on your UK Canal Boat Holiday.

A Canal Boat Holiday is truly relaxing and is free from pressure giving you a chance to unwind and take life at a more tranquil pace.

The kids can, under adult supervision, help to steer the Canal Boat and help to operate the locks.

What better holiday could there be which pleases the whole family, no stress and imagine never hearing those dreaded words I'm bored again.

Gromit is enjoying his Canal Boat trip as dogs love their Canal Boat Holidays, and with plenty of open spaces and traffic free, towpath walking it is no wonder.
