Grand Union South Canal Hire

Canal boat hire on the Grand Union South Canal Our personal favourite

Travelling south from Weedon, the Grand Union Canal passes through the one and a quarter mile long Blisworth tunnel. At the other end lies the small canalside village of Stoke Bruene with its Waterways Museum, definitely worth a visit.

On south, the canal passes over a small aqueduct at Cosgrove, through Linslade and Leighton Buzzard to Marsworth Junction and on south through Tring cutting to Cowroast lock; and return to Weedon.
98 miles - 64 locks - 1 tunnel - 1 aqueduct - 7 hours per day navigating (an easy week). Also an ideal route for short breaks.
