Canals were imperative to the industrial revolution in Britain. The development of an integrated canal system meant that goods could easily and efficiently be transported at a time where horse drawn carriage was the norm. Today, these canals are still lined with canal boats. Some are used as house boats while other ferry tourists along for a relaxing cruise.
