We are taking bookings for our new boat 'Queenie', she has almost the same layout as 'Gloria' only she is 50ft/15.45m long and a 2 berth boat. Please get in touch if you would like more info.

Gloria is a spacious, 57ft/17.37m, cruiser style narrowboat available for hire near Manchester. She is moored on the Bridgewater Canal at the Bridgewater Marina near Worsley, M28 1YB. She offers her own unique blend of style and traditional narrowboat cosiness. Take a look at the gallery.

Bring your bike, your walking boots, your camera, visit the city or cruise along the peaceful canal network. A barge holiday aboard Gloria can be as relaxing or as active as you choose. You will have good access to the Cheshire Ring, The Anderton Boat Lift, the Rochdale canal, the Leeds Liverpool canal, the Trent and Mersey and the Lancaster canal.

Gloria is available all year round, she has a solid fuel stove and gas central heating so winter breaks offer a different experience - with misty mornings and beautiful early sunsets. New Year 2014 has been booked but Christmas is still available.

If you are new to canal holidays no problem - we will teach you how to handle the boat, offer advice on what routes to take and we’ll make sure you feel happy and ready to go off on your own.
