Boating Holidays in Heart Of England Canals

Threading their way through six beautiful English shires from Tewkesbury to Stafford, this network of waterways offers a splendid variety of canal boat holidays. And you can moor near a huge array of attractions as varied as Cadbury World at Bourneville, Worcester Cathedral, Tamworth Castle, Drayton Zoo, Stratford-upon-Avon and the Wedgwood Pottery Visitor Centre. Begin your holiday at Autherley Junction or further south at Dunhampstead, and choose your canal …

Leaving the winebars and museums of Birmingham’s lively waterfront behind you, take your canal boat into the lovely rural landscape of the Worcester & Birmingham Canal, negotiating the breathtaking lock flight at Tardebigge and joining the River Severn at the historic city of Worcester. A journey on the Stourport Ring can take in a visit to the Black Country Museum, a fascinating reconstruction of Victorian working life.

From the fringes of Stafford down to its junction with the River Severn, the Staffordshire & Worcester Canal carries canal boats through valleys and rolling farmland – enchanting countryside where you’ll find a warm welcome at numerous waterside inns and restaurants.
