Visiting the Trust

Visitors are always welcome whether you arrive by narrowboat, bus, car or on foot!

More details of the site are on other pages but here are a few things you should know about so that everyone is able to enjoy the benefits of the site. We have permanent residents. This means that this is their home, their neighbourhood and we respect this by limiting nuisance and annoyance.

Our car park is small so if you are able to please park on adjacent roads, especially at weekends if you are travelling by car. Warwick Parkway Station is a 10-minute walk away, as is Warwick Town Centre. The bus service from Warwick stops on the Birmingham Road opposite the Dun Cow and that to Warwick on St Michael’s Road which is directly opposite the Birmingham Road entrance.

The pages on services give more information especially for waterborne visitors as you may need somewhat more ‘basic’ services. Day visitors, as others, can pop into the visitor centre which has a range of gifts, heritage information and also sells ice cream and drinks. There are numerous picnic tables and oak benches for relaxing around the site.

We have a DIY site guide that gives information about the renovations made here, about wildlife seen on site and generally about how the Arm came to be here in the first place.

Paths around the site have been constructed so that people with mobility issues can make their way around and there are suitable toilets, too.

Lastly, if you are bringing children, they are welcome, but it is your responsibility to ensure their safety. Canals are not generally very deep, but they can be dangerous, so please act responsibly.
Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead and there is a “no cycling” policy on site for everyone’s safety.

Please come and see us and you will receive a warm welcome and we know that you will enjoy your visit.
