Explorers at Devizes

The Kennet & Avon Canal is a great favourite with many people. A few minutes from the centre of Devizes lies Devizes Wharf, a great place to start exploring the canal.

Look out for the Kennet & Avon Trust Museum - while we, as the Canal & River Trust, are the charity who are responsible for the care of the Kennet & Avon Canal itself, we work very closely with our neighbouring charity, the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust at Devizes Wharf. They run a café, information centre and boat trips.
