Once a busy industrial canal wharf, Kintbury is now a picture of tranquillity. It's just the place to start exploring the beautiful Kennet & Avon Canal.
Go for a bike ride along the towpath, past the water meadows where watercress once thrived in the clear chalk streams. The path will take you past Hungerford Wharf, Crofton Beam Engines and all the way to Newbury.
Places to eat:
There are some benches dotted along the canal
The Kennet & Avon Canal is important for wildlife conservation. Look out for kingfishers, mute swans, coots, moorhens and herons - take a copy of our free nature spotters' guide if your not sure which is which.
By car - there's a canalside car park and parking at the train station
By train - Kintbury Station sits beside the canal - handy that!
