Basingstoke Canal

About

The Basingstoke Canal runs for 32 miles, from Greywell Village in Hampshire to Woodham in Surrey. Different parts of the canal hold their own surprises such as the flights of locks in Surrey, the lakes and flashes near Mytchett or the rolling fields and picturesque cottages near Odiham.

The Canal Visitor Centre at Mytchett is the perfect place to start exploring the canal or simply relax and watch the boats pass by.

Our facilities overlook the picturesque canal and include an information point and gift shop, tearoom, picnic area, children's 'trailblazer' play area, function room and a campsite.

There is plenty of free parking and the towpath is easily accessible from the Canal Centre, so why not start your journey from here.
