Horseboating in Britain


Horse-drawn boats were once a common sight along the length of Britain’s canal network, with thousands of horses used to transport commercial goods along canals, playing a vital part in our national economy. Today it is very different: as roads and railways made horse-drawn canal boats obsolete, new businesses have been established for leisure trips along canals through some of Britain’s most beautiful countryside. In this fascinating film each of the five remaining operators explain their boats, canals and horses – The Tiverton Canal Company, The Godalming Packet Boat Company, The Welsh Holiday Craft Company, The Kennet Horse Boat Company and Horse Drawn Enterprise.
