Had a lovely trip on the boat in September with the sun shining perfect to unwind on a Saturday afternoon the canal if filling up with weeds but still enjoyable

I used to live near the canal, it was interesting hearing the history and seeing the place from a different angle.

I had friends staying from London, so we thought it would a nice idea to have a few hours on the canal. There was 8 of us in total so took most of the little boat. The people who ran the boat were very pleasant, the boat is fairly small so some people had to wait until we came back... More

Would definitely recommend you try this. We enjoyed the 'getting away from it all' feeling and consider this trip would be appreciated by old and young alike. So lovely to take in the unexpected beauty of the surroundings. Something local that should be supported and promoted by visitors to the area and residents too.

If you want to learn about the history of Neath I would recommend to take a boat trip on Neath Canal. The scenery is beautiful, the crew is very friendly and knowledgeable and you will have a most plesent one hour on Thomas Dadford. I would recommend for childrens as well, they'll love it.

It goes from between Morrisons and B & Q car parks. Volenteers run the boats up and down the canal. Pleasant scenery and great for all ages.

What a superb way to while away an hour and fill your senses with a glimpse of the Neath valley from the Thomas Dadford, the public trip barge of the Neath & Tennant Canals Trust. Run and crewed entirely by a small band of enthusiastic volunteers, who will delight you with tales from the canal's past as you cruise the... More
