Canal & River Explorers

The Canal & River Trust looks after most of the canals and rivers in England and Wales. Explorers has been designed to help you discover them while having lots of FUN! 

Our Education Volunteers lead inspiring visits to key waterside destinations across the UK for schools and uniformed groups. 21 of our sites have been awarded the Quality Badge for Learning Outside the Classroom.

Our volunteers also lead outreach sessions in schools and deliver water safety assemblies - both of which are absolutely FREE. All of our activities are linked to the National Curriculum and are highly regarded by teachers. Contact us today to book a visit.
