No Canal Boat Holiday cruising the Grand Union Canal is complete without a visit to The Canal Boat Museum.

Found in the heart of the beautiful village of Stoke Bruerne on the Grand Union Canal and housed in a historic corn mill, The Canal Museum is a treasure trove of stories, films, collections and displays all about our waterways.

The wide range of exhibits and audio commentary give visitors a brilliant understanding to the rich waterway heritage of Stoke Bruerne and the Grand Union Canal.

The children can dress in traditional canal costume and learn about the history of the canal system.

Shop for souvenirs in the gift shop, take a picnic lunch in the grounds or stay a while in the Waterside Cafe.

Whilst exploring the area on your Canal Boat Holiday visit Blisworth which is just a short distance away from the Canal Museum.

Take a woodland walk or a stroll south down a flight of seven locks where you will find the wildlife reserve in the former brickworks.

Book your Canal Boat Holiday from our holiday base at Union Wharf if you want to cruise to Stoke Bruerne and visit the Canal Museum.
