Christmas Gifts for canal lovers

If you’ve enjoyed your time on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, you might like to give that same experience as a gift to your loved ones. We offer a range of vouchers which can be used throughout the 2017 season, subject to availability. Each voucher is presented with our 2017 brochure to give the recipient a flavour of the Mon & Brec and the Brecon Beacons.

'Electric day boat' gift voucher

A self-drive cruise on the canal from Brecon is a lovely day out for a group of friends or a family. Our boats hold up to six adults and two children, and the dog is welcome to come along, too! The cruise can last a day, a half-day or just an hour. Gift vouchers for this experience start from £15 per boat.


'Canadian canoe' gift voucher

Send them off from Brecon on a real adventure paddling along the canal. Three adults or two adults and two children will have a super time in their canoe, which can be hired for a day, a half-day or just an hour. Gift vouchers for this experience start from £10 per canoe.


'Short break on the canal' gift voucher

Make a special celebration even more memorable with a short break on the Mon & Brec canal, either staying in a canalside cottage or cruising on a narrowboat. Gift vouchers may be purchased for a specific date and cottage/narrowboat, or can have a set value which the recipient can put towards any holiday, subject to availability. Short break gift vouchers start from £335 for a cottage and £699 for a narrowboat.


Coffee table book about the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal

“200 years of The Monmouthshire and the Brecknock & Abergavenny Canals: an illustrated history” is a book we published with our late friend, the illustrator Michael Blackmore. It includes some forty of his detailed illustrations, alongside succinct notes from Alasdair, providing insightful commentary on the much-loved Mon & Brec. It’s a captivating book that you’ll want to return to again and again, to study the fascinating historic scenes captured by Michael Blackmore. £20 (excluding postage).
