Thanks to everyone who has been kind enough to review us on Trip Advisor recently. Almost all of my business comes from the internet and it has been very noticeable that recently more and more people are enquiring via Trip Advisor.

Website woes

April 14th 2014 Sorry to everyone who was trying to check our website last week, but the gremlins got in and I had to take it offline a couple of times. I have been hosting the site on my own web server which hackers found their way into and made a tiny sneaky change which […]

It’s Mothers Day on Sunday 30th March 2014 and restaurants all over London will be heaving, and I bet you’ve left it too late to arrange that special day out for your mum. Well I may just be able to save you, as we still have a prime time private cruise available for you and […]

This is a blog post in which I write on topical matters concerning my life on the canals and beyond and is a personal view! So today I was greeted by a local resident waving a copy of last weeks (5th March 2014) London Evening Standard and it’s property supplement which ran a feature on […]

We survived relatively unscathed here in Little Venice. The strongest winds since 1986 were forecast on the early morning of 28th October 2013 and sure enough they came! I left Lady A as securely moored as possible and returned the next morning to find everything was fine. A few of our neighbours had a little […]

Canalival or Carnage?

Posted · Add Comment

Saturday was fun – we had a booking to take a private party all the way from Little Venice to Broadway Market which is usually a three to four hour one way cruise. I wasn’t very happy to discover Canalival was being promoted on the same day, but as the organisers cancelled the event, we […]

I just heard someone passing by say “No it’s not Brad Pitt.” I guess they were referring to me, sitting infront of a camera while being filmed by Sage, of Sage Accounts fame. I’m very grateful to them for deciding to feature Canal and River Cruises as a user of their online accounting software called […]
