Canal & River Trust

Hi there,

As lockdown continues, we’re bringing you beautiful pictures and virtual canal adventures so you can experience relaxing views of the water from the safety of your home. Plus, we’re keeping boredom at bay with our exciting wildlife sounds quiz. 

You can also find out how our museums' teams are pulling together to care for our historic ships and other precious objects during the coronavirus pandemic.

Choose your challenge today

The coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on many charities with the postponement of thousands of events, like our most loved London Marathon on 26 April.

Designed to help charities, the 2.6 Challenge has been set up by the organisers of the London Marathon, as a simple way for the nation to come together at home and fundraise.

Join the nationwide virtual challenge taking place on Sunday 26 April. This is your chance to be a Home Hero and raise funds for the Canal & River Trust or your chosen charity from your very own living room, balcony or garden.
