In North West England, you could cruise the Cheshire Ring in a week - this offers a mix of rural and urban boating, including the south end of the Pennines, the Cheshire plains and the pretty Marple locks.

To the west of Manchester, the crew can put their feet up on a thirty mile stretch with only one lock. Alternatively, a cruise to the historic city of Chester, with its Roman walls and zoo make a pleasant and varied holiday.

Other highlights of this area close to the canals are Little Moreton Hall, a 15th century half-timbered building in the care of the National Trust, and the Macclesfield Silk Museum .

In the Welsh Borders, the Llangollen canal makes a spectacular entrance into Wales, over two magnificent aqueducts, before approaching the town famous for its Eisteddfod. Other highlights of this canal are the 600 year old castle at Chirk and the wonderfully remote Whixall Moss.
