Water Activities in Wiltshire
You may not immediately think of Wiltshire for water activities but you’d be wrong…
In the north of Wiltshire is the Cotswold Water Park which features 150 lakes alone! Here you can try your hand at many water sports including wakeboarding, canoeing, kayaking and ringo rides. For those looking for a quieter time, why not enjoy a spot of fishing or relax on the Park’s inland beach.
Then there’s the Kennet & Avon Canal which spans the width of the county. Hire a canoe at Towpath Trails in Bradford on Avon to explore Wiltshire’s grand waterway or hop aboard a canal boat at Bradford on Avon or Devizes. Hire your own canal boat, the Jack Sparrow, for a day at Devizes Marina Village and enjoy a day cruising through the wonderful Wiltshire countryside. Canoe hire is also available at the Marina Village as well.
