Canal & Tipi Experience


Canal and Tipi Experience is a family run business based between Reading and Newbury in Berkshire in the South East of England.

We offer canal boat (narrow boat) hire on the Kennet and Avon Canal and on the River Thames. Visit Newbury, Hungerford, the locks of the Caen Hill Flight near Devises and Bath, or Marlow, Henley and Oxford from the Thames. Have a waterways staycation. Have an adventure, or just relax.

We also offer a range of tipis (tepee) for hire, at a location of your choice for parties, weddings, corporate events, as additional accommodation, a camping adventure or just for fun! A tipi is a magical experience for all.
