Your Canal Boat, CIC uses educational, recreational and cultural programming to connect Londoners with London’s canals. We provide boats, crew, canal boat expertise, grant-writing workshops and our own mini-grant program to individuals, charities, CICs and corporate entities.

London’s canals are a world class heritage resource, one of the city’s best kept secrets and a laboratory for sustainable solutions. Our mission is to put “more canal” in people’s lives. We regenerate overlooked spaces for commercial and artistic activities, and share best practices to preserve the canal experience and maximise its utility for pleasure, health, education and positive economic outcomes.
