Once a busy industrial canal wharf, Hungerford Wharf is now a picture of tranquillity. And a great place to start exploring the beautiful Kennet & Avon Canal.

Lush green water meadows, weeping willows, water voles, kingfishers, sparkling chalk streams, quirky canal bridges - it's difficult to believe that all this lies just a short stroll along the towpath.
