canal boat holidays cruising route
for you to explore.

Snarestone & return holiday cruising route.

This is a recommended canal boat holidays route.

From Gayton:

Cruise up to the lovely canal village of Braunston, through the town of Rugby to the lovely lock free Ashby Canal.

The Ashby canal is steeped in history, this beautiful, tranquil canal passes by the historic scene of the Battle of Bosworth. It meanders through a very level, rural environment - therefore no locks were ever needed.

The 22-mile long canal commences at Marston Junction and drifts gently through countryside barely touching a village - let alone Ashby-de-la-Zouch, the town which gave the canal its name.

Hedgerows and reeds give an air of timelessness whilst offering ideal habitats for many species of wildlife.

From Union Wharf:

Cruise down the Grand Union canal through the Foxton and Watford Locks and the lovely Canal village of Braunston, up the Oxford canal through Rugby, along the Coventry canal by-passing the city, and along the lock free Ashby canal.
