With 2,000 miles of traffic-free towpaths, our canals and rivers are great places to walk and cycle. Many lend themselves to circular routes and most have excellent transport links, allowing you to walk in one direction and get a lift back to your starting point.
We don’t want you to get lost trying to follow one of our routes and so we have removed them for now. However, we have recently launched a new walking routes map featuring walks from trusted partner organisations.
You can also use our maps to plan your route. You can zoom right in to see the access points and the towpath along each waterway.
