Wootton Wawen - Anglowelsh Boats

Avon and Shakespeare country; the beauty of the West Midlands

Cruising Rings: Warwickshire, Avon, East Midlands Circuit, Stourport, Black Country.

Enjoying an idyllic country setting in rural Worcestershire, Tardebigge offers a great choice of cruises for both novice and experienced boaters.

Several great 'Rings' are accessible from the base - the Stourport Ring is very popular - as well as many 'there and back' options, including Stratford Upon Avon, Warwick and Worcester. Central Birmingham and rural Lapworth are favourites for Short Break cruises from the base. You can moor in the heart of the 'City of Canals' and enjoy the cosmopolitan atmosphere of this vibrant city, teeming with bars, restaurants and numerous attractions, or if city life is what you're escaping from, then head to Lapworth on the North Stratford Canal; a gorgeous rural cruise with plenty of pubs serving great food to give you a break from the galley!

Whatever length of break you have time for, be assured Tardebigge has some great options, and where better to start your canal boating holidays, than the 'Heart of England'.
