Itinerary: Droitwich Canal from Alvechurch Marina

 
Explore Worcestershire and the surrounding areas of the Droitwich canal.

The Droitwich canal reopened in 2011 after a restoration that was carried out with conservation in mind. A leafy, leisurely trip is guaranteed as you float down these relatively new waterways.

Despite being a recently refurbished, the Droitwich canal is rich in history. Pass through Hanbury, home of Hanbury Hall – a National Trust house famous for its extensive painting collection.

Make sure to travel through the village of Tardebigge – a village with over 30 locks that raise the Worcester and Birmingham Canal over 220 ft (67m). It is also home to The Tardebigge, an elegant country pub with live music every Thursday and Bottomless Brunch.

The Droitwich canal also sits on The Droitwich Ring – the 21 mile, circular route that you can easily complete in a weekend. The ring is the perfect solution for those looking for a short weekend break.
