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.
Places to eat:
- Kennett Horse Boat Company Ltd
- The Rose of Hungerford
- The Bruce Trust
- Accessible boating with the Kennett and Avon Canal Trust at Great Bedwynn
There are benches dotted along the canal
Lots of waterbirds here such as kingfishers, little grebes and tufted ducks. Grab yourself a copy of our free nature spotters' guide and go exploring
By car - there is pay & display parking available in town. There is parking on the High Street, Church Street and Station Road
By train - Hungerford Station is just two minutes from the towpath
