  • It's quiet and relaxing. I enjoy reading there or collecting my thoughts. You can watch the canal boats, there's toilets and a cafe.
  • Enjoyed short barge cruise on the Coventrian Narrow Boat ..excellent during the Heritage weekend 2017
  • Hard venue to fish but there are some nice perch and zander.
  • Safe mooring within walking distance of the city centre
  • Former industrial heart of Coventry's proud canal history. A quiet oasis seconds from the city centre situated immediately off the infamous Ring Road.

Where to stay in Coventry

A stay among the Gothic and Victorian architecture of the city center is within walking distance of the main attractions. Consider a rental room or B&B on the medieval Spon Street or near the canal. Both locations are scenic and conveniently located near the city center. Full of local eateries and shops, the Earlsdon area offers less expensive apartment rentals.
