The Midland Canals

United Kingdom
By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

Discover The Midland Canals

The Midlands are worth visiting for their network of canals extending between Worcester,Nottingham and Chester. Take the Bearley Aqueduct in the north of Stratford-upon-Avon, through which the canal spans over road and railway. Nearby, you'll spot the series of locks at the Farmers Bridge of Birmingham.

Between the towns of Warwick and Cheltenham, discover Warwick Castle, surrounded by lawns covered by oak trees, Anne Hathaway's Cottage, whose park is a reproduction of a 16th century garden, and the Snowhill Manor found in the heart of the enclosed gardens.
