Planning your visit
Address: Canal Yard, Canal Road, Thrupp, Kidlington, Oxfordshire, OX5 1JZ View on Google map
Toilets: For customers of the local pub/café, plus a toilet is available for boaters at the boaters' station.
Bring your family on a day out to Thrupp, the pretty canalside village just north of Kidlington on the Oxford Canal. From here the canal closely follows the line of the Cherwell Valley.
Rose covered terrace houses line the towpath along this stretch of the Oxford Canal - part of the Oxford Canal Walk. And no visit would be complete without a spot of afternoon tea in one of the canalside cafes or pubs.
Places to eat:
There are tables around Annie's Tearoom for a picnic or along the embankment.
A super stretch of idyllic canal where you'll see plenty of swans and ducks - just remember to feed them something healthy
By car - our free parking is available behind Annie's cafe
