Stratford Upon Avon Canal Boating Holiday2021-01-13T11:53:33+00:00

The 108-mile Avon Ring takes narrowboat holiday-makers on a journey through Shakespeare country and along the magnificent River Avon.

What can you See & Do in a week?

To complete this popular circuit in a week, you will need to cruise around eight hours each day, giving time to visit canalside villages and pubs along the way, and perhaps one or two major attractions.

To create more time for visiting destinations along the way, we recommend booking a 10-day or two-week holiday to travel this route.

The Avon Ring

Take a delightful waterway tour through the English counties of Warwickshire and Worcestershire

Passing through 130 locks, this circuit takes around 58 cruising hours.  It can be done in a week, but setting aside 10 days or two weeks allows more time for visiting attractions along the way.

The Avon Ring takes boaters along parts of the Stratford Canal, River Avon, River Severn and Worcester & Birmingham Canal.  Places of interest include: Stratford-upon-Avon and the Royal Shakespeare Theatre; panoramic views along the River Avon; the beautiful Vale of Evesham; the medieval town of Tewkesbury in the Cotswolds; the magnificent cathedral at Worcester; and the awesome flight of locks at Tardebigge.
