This really is probably the prettiest canal in England. We have just spent a week cruising and it is charming as ever. Not too many locks/bridges, but enough to be interesting.
The aquaducts are stunning, and the views breathtaking - don't forget your camara...
Most relaxing place on the planet and you exist in a different world when staying on a canal boat. Please be aware this is a busy canal, and I cannot urge first time visitors strongly enough to do your research before stepping aboard. Knowing the 'rules of the road' and the courtesy boaters tend to show for each other makes everyone's life pleasanter!
A personal plea - if you have young children please ensure they use the life belts that will be provided by your hire company (although you may have to ask) - the canal is very shallow, but the shock of going into cold water (yes, cold even in summer) can knock the wind out of the best swimmer!
