Canal boat services

Horse drawn canal boats

Our canal boats

Offering a very rare service on the British canal system, we provide a sight of times gone by with our horse-drawn canal boats. We operate boats mostly in the North-West and Greater Manchester area.

Canal boats were horse drawn before the use of motorboats, and we run community, education and heritage events to remind us all of how things used to be. Historic cargo boats and modern passenger boats are used. Many of the events that we put on receive real enthusiasm from local communities and onlookers. 

For a unique service with the experts at Horse Drawn Enterprises call 07711 121 056
