Grand Union Canal - Main Line | England
Thames River | England
was once the most important link from London to the Midlands. After the Grand Union Canal was built, being bigger, broader and more modern, it fell asleep for centuries.
Tourism has wakened it then and today it is one of the favorites of Narrow Boat friends.
Its popularity has a shady side as well; during the main season, it is rather crowded and the heavy traffic can lead to water shortage. Connoisseurs know; it’s nicest on the canals in autumn anyway.
