Worcester Marina, Lowesmoor Wharf, Worcester, Worcestershire, United Kingdom
Flowing through the heart of England is a mystic highway of canals, rivers and waterways waiting to take travelers on a backcountry tour of the ever-beautiful, lush green scenery aboard a brightly colored canal boat. Leisurely follow the meandering waterways through the idyllic stretches of the Shakespeare countryside including Stratford-upon-Avon. Or perhaps go north into rural Worcestershire and then motor alongside both quaint and modern shopping malls, dining spots and, of course, the Royal Worcester Porcelain Factory. Whichever route you prefer, this mixture of culture, history and shopping is sure to appeal.
