Arts and culture

The National Waterways Museum provides an escape to times gone by. Here, on the embankment, you'll find the town's museum and the largest canal boat collection in the world. You'll discover the warehouses, docks and locks, workers' cottages, sSEOSITE_LEVEL_DESCRIPTIONs and a forge that were at the heart of such an important industry for the area. This historic location is perfect for a fun, interactive and educational experience. There are activities all year round including historic boat rallies and beer festivals.

Take a trip on a narrow boat for a different perspective on the area and be sure to look out for the wildlife, from swans, ducks and coots to moor hens, cormorants and kingfishers.

There are a host of other attractions including an undersea walkway, pirate playground and coral cave. The centre is a fun visit for all the family and a great way to learn about ocean life.

For a relaxing couple of hours or so, the town's 20-screen cinema plays the latest blockbusters as well as a smattering of art-house and indie flicks.
