Narrowboats

When I worked and lived In London several years ago, I had the luck of living at one point in a rented narrowboat in Maida Vale's "Little Venice". Now that I am married and have a family, I ponder doing a week (during a month long visit back to the UK) on a narrowboat slowly exploring the canals.

Has anyone done this recently? I will post on London forum too.

Thanks in advance.

I've not done it recently, but http://www.canaljunction.com/ is an incredible resource.

Are you considering self-drive or hotel narrowboat? The latter generally have age restrictions for children, e.g. must be over 12 yo.
