Toilets: There are public toilets

Once a busy industrial canal wharf, Aldermaston Wharf is now a picture of tranquillity. It's great place to start exploring the beautiful Kennet & Avon Canal. And it's not just narrowboats these days, increasingly Aldermaston Wharf is the starting point for canoe trails.

Back on the towpath, while the Canal & River Trust are the charity who are responsible for the care of over 2,000 miles of waterways, including the K&A, we also work closely with our neighbouring charity, the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust at Aldermaston Wharf. They run a café and museum.

Things to do and see

Take to the towpath:

Boat trips:

Picnic spot:

There are some benches dotted along the canal

Trails:

Wildlife spotting:

Nearby flooded gravel pits and the canal are wonderful for wildlife. Why not go out nature spotting - you never know what you might see a kingfisher or two?

Getting here

By train - Aldermaston Station is a brisk but pleasant five minute walk from the wharf
