Boating on the Kennet & Avon Canal
Starting from our Brass Knocker Basin base – with its Café-Restaurant, historic canal display, railway and canal bookshop, chandlery and wonderful views – you join the Kennet and Avon Canal beside the magnificent Dundas Aqueduct which carries the canal high over the River Avon. Most of the length between Bath and the lovely old wool town of Bradford on Avon runs through the beautiful Limpley Stoke valley. The river is crossed again by another aqueduct in the hamlet of Avoncliff. The waterway enters Bath through the romantic tunnels of Sydney Gardens. There is a lot to see of historical interest and wildlife abounds. Many varieties of bird, from swans to kingfishers are to be found along the canal.
