Where can I explore on my Long Term rental?

Weedon is centrally located within Britain's Inland waterways and is a fantastic place from which to explore the canals and rivers of England and Wales. There are over 2000 miles of connected waterways to choose from. Below are some suggestions.

One Month Hire

You can sit back and cruise the local canal system at leisure, we have some iconic British canals local to us. The Oxford Canal leads you to the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’, the Stratford-on-Avon canal of Shakespeare fame provides numerous attractions, along the way you can also take in a visit to Warwick with its stunning castle. If you would like to cover more distance you can explore the Thames Ring taking in the Grand Union Canal, the Royal river Thames and then return up the Oxford canal back to Weedon.

Two Month Hire

Venture North exploring the Four Counties Ring along with a diversion up the Llangollen Canal and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct world heritage site, you can also add a visit to the historic city of Chester. Or perhaps head south and west to discover the Royal River Thames and the world famous Kennet and Avon Canal all the way to Bath or even Bristol.

Three Months or longer

Head further North and visit the Leeds and Liverpool Canal or explore much of the waterways of the midlands or southern England.
