Coolcanals: Waterways Directory & Information Guide. Waterside Walks & Cycling, Boating & Holidays in the Waterways Outdoors

There's nowhere else quite like Britain's canals. Over 2,000 miles of canals and rivers meander every contour of England, Wales and Scotland. An unhurried parallel world, where you can completely switch off, ditch the daily grind and discover the slowest treasures of beautiful Britain.
 
You can find everything you need here to plan your own holidays, days out and activities along the canals... Go for a walk, a bike ride with the kids, a day out in the open air or have fun simply messing about in boats. Or why not go sightseeing, wobble away in a kayak for the first time, let your hair down at a waterside festival, take the family on a narrowboat holiday they'll never forget, find a cosy waterside pub for a lazy day out just 'gongoozling'... there's plenty to be surprised by along these historic water-roads.
 

Enjoy August on the canals...
