Stoke-on-Trent has two canals running through it, the Trent & Mersey and Caldon Canals. There are many attractions situated near to the canal network including Wedgwood Visitor Centre & Museum, Emma Bridgewater, Portmeirion, Stoke Minster, Spode Works Visitor Centre, Middleport Pottery and Festival Park.
The canals provide a great facility for walking and biking along.
Why not hire a boat from Festival Park and take a boat into the Staffordshire Peak District?
Two Saints Way Pilgrimage
There is a large proportion of the Two Saints Way that follows the canal through the City. The Two Saints Way is a new 88 mile pilgrimage route which has been recreated between the cathedral cities of Chester and Lichfield. The latest pilgrim path in Britain, The Two Saints Way is named after the two Saxon saints who brought Christianity to the ancient kingdom of Mercia in the 7th century.
While pilgrims walked between the shrine of St Werburgh at Chester and the shrine of St Chad at Lichfield during the Middle Ages, modern-day pilgrims are once again being given the chance to follow the route that has been revived
