Wey & Arun Canal

Wey & Arun Canal

Chalkwell Coaches DayBreak to Wey & Arun Canal

In 1816, The Wey & Arun Junction Canal opened to great fanfare, linking the Wey Navigation near Guildford to the south coast via the Arun Navigation. Conceived during the Napoleonic Wars, the Canal was intended to provide a safe, efficient route from London to Portsmouth to carry goods supplying the dockyards. In its heyday, the Canal did carry many tons of cargo but the end of the war with France, and the arrival of the railways, sounded the death knell for the Wey & Arun as a business, and by 1871 it was formally closed. Today, more 200 years after it opened, you have the opportunity to enjoy a leisurely cruise and take in the stunning scenery, whilst enjoying a cream tea on board!
