Not used the boat centre but walked nearby. It is a very nice walk along the canal. You can enjoy the view of houseboats and very beautiful houses overlooking the river. It’s a great attraction of the pretty town of Broxbourne

Totally innocent way to amuse younger kids. Good value for money and timing just about right. Can only do this once or twice as the route is always the same, but so good to see the delight in the faces of the kids.
