Walking

We’re keeping 2,000 miles of canals and rivers open, so you have somewhere to exercise and relax while following advice to keep your distance.

We work hard to ensure our towpaths are open and accessible so you can enjoy a waterside ramble whatever the time of year. Aside from lock flights, your path is level and there’s little chance of getting lost. The unfolding scenery of a canal-side stroll also takes some beating. Where else could you find such a mix of wildlife, architecture, countryside and of course, the thing that brings it all to life, narrowboats?

Look at the links on the right to find more information about walking by our canals and rivers.
