Canal rings are a popular way to explore the waterways of England, Scotland, and Wales. A canal ring is a circular route that takes you through a series of connected canals and waterways.
These routes offer a varied cruising experience, with different landscapes and attractions along the way. Canal rings are an ideal choice for a leisurely canal holiday, providing the opportunity to explore new areas and take in the sights at a relaxed pace.
Canal rings are a great option for those who want flexibility in their travels. You can customise the length of your trip and the speed at which you travel. You can also plan your itinerary based on your interests, whether you prefer historic cities, picturesque villages, or peaceful countryside. Renting a boat is hassle-free with various options available, from small narrowboats to larger barges. Many companies offer canal holiday packages that include boat rental, route planning, and on-board amenities like kitchens and bathrooms.
There are many different canal rings to choose from if you’re interested in a canal holiday. The Cheshire Ring is a popular choice, taking you through rural Cheshire and the Peak District. The Warwickshire Ring passes through Shakespeare’s birthplace and the historic city of Coventry, while the Four Counties Ring crosses into Staffordshire, Cheshire, Shropshire, and Worcestershire. Every route has its own unique attractions, from historical landmarks to scenic countryside. These circular routes make planning your trip easy because you can start and finish at the same location.
