The Warwickshire Ring

Canal Holidays – 1 to 2 Week Routes

Hawkesbury Junction Bridge

The Warwickshire Ring

A popular route for the canal holidays enthusiast, contrasting stretches of great beauty and others of urbanisation; with upwards of 94 locks depending on your route through Birmingham. After Braunston you take the Grand Union past Leamington and Warwick via Kingswood Junction past Cadbury World right into the heart of Birmingham where you will be spoilt for leisure activities. You return via the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal past Drayton Manor Theme Park and down the Coventry Canal. We strongly recommend the slightly longer way through Birmingham via Norton, Gas Street Basin and the North Stratford Canal. This route does involve some planning as only certain overnight moorings in Birmingham are recommended.

This canal holiday route can be achieved in 1 week but is better enjoyed as a longer break.
