Come and escape with us on the tranquil waters of a canal boat, where knitters come together for a delightful four hour cruise! Enjoy knitting while gliding along the picturesque canals, surrounded by scenic landscapes and the soothing sounds of nature. As you knit, connect with a community of fellow knitters sharing stories, ideas, and techniques.
Travelling on the Grand Union canal, the canal boat itself is a charming and cosy venue, providing a warm and inviting ambiance. On a mild day you can also sit on the deck enjoying the stunning views passing by, while feeling the gentle breeze against your face.
For those who seek a touch of adventure, you'll have the opportunity to assist in the fascinating process of opening canal locks, with hands-on experience that adds an extra layer of excitement to your day on the water. Alternatively, you may choose to explore the canal path by foot. Our boat can drop you off and pick you up at designated points along the way, allowing you to take a leisurely stroll amidst the picturesque scenery.
To make this day even more memorable, we will serve delicious refreshments, including tea, coffee, and cake.
Join us and experience one of our Knitting Escapes on the water—an idyllic combination of creativity, relaxation, and natural beauty. Secure your spot today and embark on a knitting journey like no other. Get ready to cast on, as you set sail on a remarkable day of knitting on the tranquil waters of the canal.
Parking is close by at the boatyard, toilets on board.
Don't forget to bring your knitting!
