Banbury Tramway L1

Banbury Tramway Moorings are located in the medieval market town of Banbury on the Oxford Canal. The location provides boaters with an excellent base from which to explore this interesting town, as well as surrounding countryside and winding course of the South Oxford Canal.

The location offers boaters with a good starting point for plenty of good circular cruising routes along the Oxford and Grand Union Canals. Warwick, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Oxford are also within easy reach by boat or by car.
