Tiverton Canal Co, Tiverton, Devon
Visit the Tiverton Canal Co and climb aboard one of the last remaining horse-drawn barges in the UK for a relaxing trip along the Grand Western Canal amidst the beautiful Devon countryside. If you’d prefer to go at your own pace, hire a rowing boat or Canadian canoe and test your paddle power, but whichever way you choose, look out for wildlife as you go – swans gliding, ducks dabbling, and who knows, you may even see the bright blue flash of a kingfisher darting across the water.
When you return to port, meet the shire horses that pulled the barge along the 11 mile stretch of canal and then get refreshments on board the floating Ducks Ditty Bar or at the Canal Tea Rooms and Garden. Just what holidays are for.
Open: April – October (Horse-Drawn Barge runs to timetable)
Closed: Mondays, except Bank Holidays.
