In the heatwave - Britain's Coolest Canals

Those of us who already know and love Britain's canals might be forgiven for wanting to keep the secret to ourselves. But the canals are a national treasure to be shared, and our mission is to tell as many folk as we can about all the amazing things to see and do on the towpaths and the water.

We've just teamed up with, website of Martin Dunford (co-founder of Rough Guides) and Jonathan Knight (founder of Cool Camping) - to write a blog for them, Britain's Coolest Canals, about a few of our favourite canal routes - the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, Macclesfield Canal, Llangollen Canal, Worcester & Birmingham Canal, and the Oxford Canal. Ooooh, and from the blog, you can also win a £1000 narrowboat holiday with UK Boat Hire!

Thanks Cool Places! These boys know a thing or two about travel and leisure time, and it seems they agree with us girls - canals are cool!
