There are bridges and locks and moorings and docks… so maybe let English Holiday Cruises take the helm charge?

There are many things that signify being British. Queues. Tutting. A strange dependency on tea. Poor political decisions. You know the things. And somewhere in that list is the desire to mess about on the river.


You could do it yourself. Or you could put yourself in the hands of someone like English Holiday Cruises who’ll take you (and yours, if you like them enough) around the Cotswolds and Gloucestershire for between two and seven days. They’ll do the important stuff leaving you free to do the messing about. And all from the comfort of the Edward Elgar – but of course – the UK’s largest hotel boat.

All of that and a holiday that’s not going to be messed up by exchange rates. We suspect they’re going to be in demand so you might then want to check out their website asap for details of the 2023 holidays…
