Using our map

Use our interactive map to help plan your route. You can check how many locks or tunnels you'll have to pass through, and where there are visitor moorings and boating facilities, such as water points.

Or, add your postcode or town name to our Local to You page to find local information on events, activities, news and more.

If you're using our maps and you see a marker with a number in it, this means that there is more than one entry at this location. Either click on it to see a list or zoom in further to see the entries separately.

Something not right? Use our online map correction tool to let us know about it.
