Warwick & Leamington Cruise

Plenty of waterside inns on this route to quench your thirst.

Royal Leamington Spa with its fine Regency terraces has some fine shops and the Pump Rooms where people have been sampling the water since 1838, when Oueen Victoria took them.

On through Warwick with its Castle and curio shops. Just beyond Warwick are the 21 locks at Hatton - an awe-inspiring sight. Some boats' crews turn at the bottom of Hatton and retrace their route to Weedon, others look upon Hatton as a challenge and press on to Kingswood before turning for home.

71 miles - 118 locks - 2 tunnels - 7 1/4 hours per day navigating (an easy week).
