The Droitwich Ring

The Droitwich Ring canal boat holiday route

The Droitwich Ring offers a delightful canal boat cruising experience along the tranquil waterways of Worcestershire

Also known as the Mid-Worcestershire Ring, the Droitwich Ring is a 21-mile, 33-lock circuit which takes around 16 hours to complete.  It travels sections of the Worcester & Birmingham Canal and the River Severn, as well as the Droitwich Barge and Junction canals.

Highlights include: the City of Worcester with its magnificent cathedral; the historic spa town of Droitwich; Hanbury Hall; the ancient village of Salwarpe; Dunhampstead Tunnel; and Diglis Basin.

The Droitwich Canals were historically important for the transportation of salt, as Droitwich Spa was known for its salt production. The canals fell into disuse but were restored and re-opened in 2011, offering boaters the opportunity once again to navigate the Droitwich Ring.
