To complete the whole of the Cheshire Ring will take around ten days but there are other options, which do not take as much time. A trip from Market Drayton and back takes about three days, which is perfect for a long weekend away.
Cheshire Ring Canal Boat Rental is very reasonably priced and is suitable for most people’s budgets. A canal boat can sleep up to eight people and this makes it a wonderful way to spend time with the family or with a group of friends. Do not worry if you have not been on a canal boat before, as full training will be given before you set off. The top speed of the boat is four miles per hour so you can meander along at a gentle pace and enjoy the ride.
