Charity number


Waterways Experiences (originally registered as 'WEXP') is based on Hertfordshire's Grand Union Canal just to the south of Hemel Hempstead.

We are an award winning all-volunteer charity providing well-being benefits to the community by providing affordable canal boat trips for all. We enable everyone including the disadvantaged, the elderly, individuals with physical or learning disabilities along with young groups to experience the fun and beauty of our waterways.

We operate three spacious, fully accessible, wide-beamed passenger boats and offer day trips year round. 

During summer, we run "Enable" holidays for severely disadvantaged young people and for groups of young carers.

We rely on donations to help cover general running costs and to fund our activities:

  • Free 'Enable' trips
  • Subsidised or free day trips for our priority groups
  • Support for our two current capital projects: wharf improvement and extension and a new low-carbon fully accessible boat.
