Short Break Canal Boat Holidays

Weekend and Midweek Breaks on a Narrowboat from Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire

How about a few days away on a Wyvern Shipping Canal Boat?

If you have less than a week to spare, then one of our short breaks is just the thing. 

Weekend & Midweek Breaks

On all the Friday-start boats we are able to offer weekend cruises from 4.00pm Friday afternoon, finishing at 9.30am Monday morning and mid-week cruises from 4.00pm on Monday afternoon to 9.30am Friday morning.

The narrowboats are available to board anytime between 1.30pm and 3.00pm  (after 3pm by prior arrangement with the boatyard). Boats may be returned on the Sunday evening if preferred.
