The Canal & River Trust is the charity that works to bring 2000 miles of waterways to life across England and Wales. Canal & River Explorers is the main learning programme of the Trust. We inspire children's learning by connecting them to our canals and rivers.
Our Education Volunteers lead inspiring visits to key waterside destinations across the UK as well as in-school visits, all of which are FREE. We also offer learning at our museums and attractions. 24 of our sites have been awarded the Quality Badge for Learning Outside the Classroom. All activities are linked to the national curriculum and are highly regarded by teachers.
"Sparrows learned so much in such a short space of time about the rivers and canals in their town - 200 years of history in 60 minutes!! Thanks, again, for bringing our topic to life." Key Stage 2 teacher, Cuddington Primary School
