Worcester Base – Local Routes

Worcester City is located on the junction of the River Severn and the Worcester & Birmingham Canal, with the 12th Century Cathedral visible from the water. The re-opening of the nearby Droitwich Canal has made this location ideal for those wishing to complete a mini-ring over a short break. For a longer holiday, there is a choice of longer ring routes or ‘out and back’ options, exploring Tewkesbury, Stourport, Stratford-upon-Avon or Birmingham by boat. Ideal for family groups.
