River cruising does not have to be abroad! What could be better than messing about on the river in the Cotswolds aboard a charming hotel boat that gently takes its time sailing along the River Severn or the Sharpness Ship Canal?
English Holiday Cruises are run by a family company which takes great pride in ensuring your holiday success. Board in Gloucester, unpack once, sit back and relax for a unique touring holiday through glorious English countryside. A variety of river cruise holidays are available for individuals and groups and the home mooring is easy to reach by train, coach or car.
English Holiday Cruises passengers visit a new ‘port’ each day to explore the local sights or join an inclusive guided tour. There are pretty towns such as Frampton, Upton and Stourport; heritage sights such as Gloucester and Worcester Cathedrals, Tewkesbury Abbey, the Purton ‘Hulks’ and Berkeley Castle; and a wildlife centre at Slimbridge. One cruise also includes excursions on the Severn Valley Railway and a boat trip on the River Avon.
