LNBP Community Boating, formerly known as London Narrow Boat Project, is a Registered Charity, a non-profit making voluntary organisation and a Company limited by Guarantee.
The organisation was founded in 1981 by a group of teachers, youth workers and canal enthusiasts who recognised the benefit of introducing children and young people, particularly from the inner cities, to the enjoyment of canals and inland waterways. LNBP provides canal boat holidays, canal boat experiences and canal boat trips of various durations to help educate and engage.
This ethos still continues to be at the forefront of the organisation’s aims and operations today. We welcome groups of all ages and backgrounds to enjoy the experience of canal boating with us aboard either of our two purpose-built canal boats, called Guinevere and Lancelot.
Each year LNBP Community Boating provides the opportunity for a wide variety of user groups from all over the UK to enjoy inexpensive canal boating holidays in central England.
These groups include schools, colleges, youth groups, clubs, uniformed organisations and associations, groups working with the disabled, the partially sighted and those with special needs, and organisations working with the disadvantaged and unemployed.
