“caen hill lock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

wonderful afternoon/ early evening stroll watching the barges tackle the locks, showing my granddaughter how its done, 8 years old and she was fascinated, and even helped the barge girls a couple of times with the gates, lovey tea rooms at the top of the lock too, well worth a visit for a couple of hours! beautiful setting with all the birds swimming around as well.

“A great walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

I visited Caen hill locks for the second time in May,my previous visit being in 2012. It is a really interesting place to stroll along the canal side watching and chatting to the Canal boat pilots negotiating the locks. Go on a sunny summers day and its even better.

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

While away the hours watching the boats navigate the miriad locks in this relaxed and pleasant canal. Delicious milkshakes and ice cream are available at the Cafe at the top of the run of locks. The perfect location for a stroll.

“thought I was gonna die”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Cycling down it last August and loved it-cycled up it in April and didnt love it soo much!!!! But it was still great. felt so proud that I did it without stopping considering I passed people a lot younger than me walking with their bikes...... come on.
