Oxford Canal Walking Holiday
in Southern England and The Midlands
from Banbury to Coventry

The Oxford Canal is one of England’s most peaceful waterways and the walk on this section of the towpath is a distance of 54 miles which links the cathedral city of Banbury to Coventry.

This is an excellent way to explore the industrial heritage and see the beauty of the North Oxforshire countryside, abundant wildlife and birdlife, as well as picturesque villages and wild flowers. Utilizing the towpath all the way, this predominently level walk passes over some of the canal’s many stone, wooden and iron bridges, through a tunnel and past locks.

The route can be walked in either direction and for those looking for a longer walking holiday it can be linked to a walking holiday on the following route:
