Things to do

From paddle sports to fishing, wildlife spotting to exploring our museums and attractions, there are many fun and interesting things to do along our canals and rivers.

Here at the Canal & River Trust we believe that life is better by water. Whatever you’re doing, whether it’s walking the dog, cycling to work or just looking for a place to relax, doing it next to our waterways can make you healthier and happier.
