Narrowboat Ring Routes

Waterways Ring canal boat holidays:

A waterways Ring is quite simply a circular route that will take you back to your starting point. They tend to offer a lovely variety of town and countryside and can cover some distance.

There are Rings that are suitable for a one or two week holiday and rings that are more active than others in terms of number of locks and hours per day that you wish to travel.

The Mid Worcester Ring for example offers a nice short break route, whereas the Avon Ring is aimed at fourteen days with six hours cruising per day. The Avon Ring also includes the famous Tardebigge flight – the longest flight of locks in the UK!

See below for the variety of canal Rings to choose from across the UK. Click on a route and you will see the length of time it takes, plus the amount of hours per day that you will need to travel.
