Holidaying during the school break can be particularly expensive, which is why Black Prince have chosen to launch a special saving to help families plan their holidays around the school timetable.
Leighton Jones, Operations Manager at Black Prince says, “The school summer holidays are the perfect time for families to get away and enjoy some quality time together, but more often than not these can be the most expensive months of the year to book a break.
We are delighted to offer our special school holidays discount which we hope will make summer travel more affordable for families and encourage parents and children to enjoy the magic of a canal boat holiday.”
A barge break is an ideal staycation choice for families and is sure to give the kids a thrill, with little ones loving the adventurous element of sleeping overnight aboard a boat. While boats offer a quirky change of environment they also provide comfortable accommodation and a home from home with all the modern amenities a family needs – including a fully fitted bathroom, private bedrooms, cooking facilities, and of course, plug sockets and free wi-fi.
Not only is a canal boat holiday a fun-packed adventure for children, it also offers an incredible hands-on learning experience. Aboard a narrowboat, children can learn key skills including how to manage the ropes, how to open the canal locks, and even how to steer the boat using the tiller – with adult supervision of course. Additionally, working together as a family to guide your boat along the canal is a fantastic bonding opportunity and will also help to improve children’s skills of teamwork and communication.
A UK canal boat holiday is a great way to travel to some of the country’s wonderful attractions all in one epic journey.
