A great relaxing time. Just stroll, sleep on grass, watch a street magician, have a cafe, or take a canal cruise. It's a great way to spend time with your family.

To kill some time while waiting for our hotel room to be ready at The White Swan we went on a 45 minute canal barge trip.

Either walk along the canal which is very nice with plenty of seating or take the river boat on a circular cruise
