Leighton Buzzard on the canal has always been lovely with its locks and some nice quality pubs. Always a good experience boat watching.

Always love visiting the canal, different areas each time. Son loves it, and the countryside is amazing through Bedfordshire.

Driving through Milton Keynes (that hadn't even been thought of when the canal was dug!), passed by the Great Union Canal - a relic of the motorways of the industrial revolution. Pretty walking area alongside the canal paths.
