Watch colourful narrowboats ascending the 'staircase' of ten locks, as their crews turn paddles and heave gates open to move their boats up the hill. Discover the wildlife in the side-ponds - ducks, herons, rare reeds and much more.
Find out about Foxton's fascinating history at the museum, then take a boat trip on the canal. Enjoy a pint, or treat yourself to a meal at the Foxton Locks Inn. Then browse through the traditional 'roses and castles' gifts and canal books at the Foxton Locks Shop.
Foxton is three miles north-west of Market Harborough, in rural south Leicestershire.
