Whether you are an individual, a club canoeist or paddleboarder or a family group, feel free to come along and try out the water.

We offer day tickets and annual licences. The canal is ideal for novices and for basic training. The canal is a beautiful retreat close to the city and you can enjoy unique views of the cathedral and South Downs from the water. Enjoy the abundance of wild flowers and reeds beds, as you glide past, and watch out for herons and kingfishers in their natural habitat.

If you are an organisation or club leader, please contact us at boxoffice@nullchichestercanal.com for information regarding season tickets and block bookings.
