Wey & Arun Canal Cruise

This relaxing and traditional tour includes cruising along the idyllic Loxwood Link section of the canal on the Surrey/West Sussex border. On arrival we have organised a scrumptious Ploughman's lunch with a cup of tea.

Just a stones throw away you will board the canal boat for a restful afternoon. Your group will have their very own chartered boat for an hour and half cruise admiring the beautiful scenery as you while away the afternoon. In 1816, The Wey & Arun Junction Canal opened to great fanfare, linking the Wey Navigation near Guildford to the south coast via the Arun Navigation.

 

Conceived during the Napoleonic Wars, the Canal was intended to provide a safe, efficient route from London to Portsmouth to carry goods supplying the dockyards. In its heyday, the Canal did carry many tons of cargo, but the end of the war with France, and the arrival of the railways, sounded the death knell for the Wey & Arun as a business, and by 1871 it was formally closed.
