Canal boat holidays on the Trent & Mersey Canal and Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal

We’re situated on the crossroads of the Staffordshire & Worcestershire and Trent & Mersey canals, so there’s a great choice of routes.

Head north on the Trent & Mersey Canal and you can join the Caldon Canal, taking you into the Peak District to Froghall, a short bus ride away from Alton Towers theme park.

The beautiful Tixall Wide is just 15 minutes cruise from Great Hawyood. where the canal opens up to the size of a lake.

Further along the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal you’ll come across Victorian Wightwick Manor with its William Morris interiors and colourful garden.

You can complete the Four Counties Ring or Black Country Ring from Great Haywood.
