Canal Holiday Route Map for the Leicester Ring
3 night+ cruising map
Leisurely cruise options from Sawley marina on the Leicester Ring.
14 night route map.

A circular canal holiday, or ring can be undertaken in two weeks which would follow the 7 night route from Sawley to Fradley Junction on the Trent and Mersey, then south to Fazeley Junction along the Coventry canal. Bearing east here toward Alvecote the route continues along the Coventry to Hawkesbury Junction
where the Oxford Canal is followed to the famous canal village of Braunston. Beyond Braunston, the Grand Union Leicester line is picked up at Norton Junction, and this then heads north towards Market Harborough, Leicester, Loughborough and a return to Sawley.

On 14 Night Leicester Ring canal holidays
, the clockwise route may be favoured depending on the prevailing or anticipated weather. Please note that cruising along the river Soar is weather dependent. In the event of potentially high water levels, you will cruise along the Trent & Mersey canal, a fine and exciting option instead. The above is intended purely as a guide. Cruising times, options and distances are subject to prevailing conditions and personal choice. Please note that the final permitted turning/winding point for our boats in Nottingham is just before Meadow Lane Lock. Cruising eastward on the Trent beyond this point is prohibited in all circumstances.
