Canal Boat Club - Welcome aboard

If you like quiet pubs, in rural settings you will be spoilt for choice, but if you want organised entertainment you should look elsewhere.

A few good books are a must and a pack of cards can be worth its weight in gold on a wet day. If you have children, perhaps some jigsaws or board games might be a good idea, but don't bring the Scalextric!

Don't forget also, that each boat is fitted with a television and DVD player, so a selection of DVD's might prove invaluable if the weather is inclement.
