Base Information

Ideally situated at the head of the Oxford Canal, Napton is a base for a large number of interesting routes. The Warwickshire Ring, for the more energetic, contrasts the beautiful countryside around Warwick with city life and industry through Birmingham and Spaghetti Junction.

Trips of beauty and interest can also be achieved, including Stratford Upon Avon, Oxford, Snarestone, or a visit to the Waterways Museum at Stoke Bruerne, depending on the number of locks you wish to negotiate.
