A visit to Gunthorpe Lock is a blissful way to spend an afternoon and be sure to pack a picnic if the weather is good. An important river crossing for many years, the first Gunthorpe Bridge was built in 1875 but before this a ferry was the only means of crossing the river here. Visitors can discover more about the lock from the interpretation panel and listening post on site. Disabled visitors enjoy excellent access, with ample car parking and a wide towpath.

We was four adults out for Sunday lunch. The meal and service was first class. We all had something different off the menu and all was cooked to perfection. Highly recommended

A great walk with cafes and pubs or a great place for picnics. I have paddled in the Trent here and seen the moo cows. A great walk. By Reu aged 2

A boat lock is a great place for just watching folk go about their business. Proud people on their boats, dog walkers and just people all enjoying themselves doing very little. A lovely way to spend a few hours
