musical holidays | The Piano Boat

After a successful season in 2021, we are currently restructuring and hope to be back later in the year!

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way so far.


Our Virtual Concerts will continue each month in the meantime.

The Piano Boat is a 5-star hotel boat, as rated by VisitEngland (October 2021)

Holidays from £715pp


For just a few weeks of the year, The Piano Boat will be offering an exclusive opportunity for two to stay on board for a unique holiday on the waterways.

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 musical soirée evenings in the comfort and luxury of the Concert Saloon, and design your bespoke musical holiday to suit you.
