We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Restoration and repair open days

Each year we hold a number of free open days and this year is no exception. We're inviting you along to take a look behind the scenes and find out what it takes to keep our canals and rivers open to everyone.

Reflecting the breadth of the work we carry out, each open day offers a different experience and you could find yourself descending into drained locks, taking a boat trip or strolling along an empty aqueduct.

All around the country

We hold open days around the country so wherever you are there should be something nearby. While each open day varies due to the work being carried out, at all open days you’ll be able to chat to our engineers, ask questions and find out about the past of the area.

There’s really no better way to get a feel for the ingenious engineering and precise workmanship that went into making our canals all of those years ago.
