Beautiful Leicestershire

Rural Leicestershire boasts some of the finest landscapes in the country. The elevated position of some sections of the canal allows you to look down over the rolling fields. With a long agricultural heritage there is always lots to observe.

Gran Union Canal

The Grand Union Canal is the longest in the UK, linking London with Birmingham & Leicester. 

Setting off from North Kilworth Wharf you can enjoy miles of lock free boating, or for those who are more adventurous you can head to Foxton Locks.

Here is a link to a Grand Union Canal map. Discover where the canal can take you!

The Canal & River Trust have a great interactive map to help you plan your journey. Find out more about our Narrow Boat hire here.


We are a 1 mile from Husbands Bosworth where there is a Springfield local convenience store. Sainsburys, Tesco and Asda all deliver to the Wharf so you can organise your shopping to be delivered before you arrive as we will be here cleaning the boat.
