  • Great to see lots of old maps and parts. Gives you a good understanding of how the canals were used in the days gone by. Lots of pictures to show how the horses were used and all the different boats. Nice little cafe and there is also a pub serving food. Lots of canal boats going though the locks and most of them will let the children push open the lock for them. My son enjoyed that.
  • I have visited both from the canal and driven up. The museum and other activities is a lovely half day spent in this small village. Have a meal at the pub opposite, wander round the canal museum and watch the boats going up and down the lock. Take a trip on a canal boat. Don't rush it.
  • Not much to see and only takes 15 minutes to look around. Overpriced considering the size.
  • It is a great place to visit. there is quite often events on in Stoke Bruerne too.
  • Nice shop
