Rose Narrowboats to Avon ring map

The Avon Ring

Done ‘clockwise’, this will take you past Warwick down to Stratford-on-Avon, along the historic Avon to Tewkesbury, up the Severn to Worcester, along the Worcester & Birmingham into Birmingham and back via the Coventry Canal.

100 hours with 214 locks makes this a challenging route, that you may want to consider taking a 3 week holiday rather than 2 weeks to visit some of the attractions instead of cruising every day.
