For just a few weeks of the year, The Piano Boat will be offering an exclusive opportunity for two to stay on board in the luxury double or twin cabin.*

Unlike other hotel boats, on board Rachmaninov there are no compromises to be made with fellow travellers - the space is yours to enjoy and the holiday exactly the way you want it.

Whilst exploring the magnificent, historical British canals, you will have the rare opportunity to experience and enjoy your very own personal piano recitals in the comfort and luxury of the Concert Saloon, and design your bespoke musical holiday to suit you.


Your holiday will include a complementary music package, inclusive of up to two private piano performances by renowned concert pianist Masayuki Tayama.

(3-4 nights - one performance; 5-7 nights - two performances)

We always do our best to accommodate requests, so if there's anything else you would like, just ask!
