If you're well equiped for the British summer, a walk along the canal is a must. Plenty to do and see along the way. Plenty of ploaces or childrena d dogs to run around, plud/restaurants and cages, as well as art displays and other local businesses.

Lovely 45min cruise on the canal leaving from the holiday inn dock, we had a very informative guide who made the cruise very interesting. Saw some beautiful river side property's which we can only dream about lol. Would recommend anyone to have a visit.

Such a nice setting to watch the boats maneuver the canal. Many barge companies are available for a cruise down the Avon.
