42 minutes - 19.1 miles

Longleat Safari and Adventure Park, in Wiltshire, England, was opened in 1966 as the first drive-through safari park outside Africa. The park is situated in the grounds of Longleat House, an English stately home which is open to the public and is the home of the 7th Marquess of Bath. Longleat Safari Park and the concept of safari parks were the brainchild of Jimmy Chipperfield (1912-1990), former co-director of Chipperfield's Circus.

Today, Longleat is home to over 500 animals, and the estate occupies 9,000 acres (36.42 km2) of Wiltshire countryside.
Bowood House & Gardens

24 minutes - 9 miles

Bowood is one of Capability Brown's finest parks. He extended a pond into a large curved lake. Laid out over 2,000 acres (8 km²) in the 1760s, it replaced an earlier, more formal garden of avenues and wildernesses. Brown's design encompasses a sinuous lake (almost 1 km long), with lawns sloping gently down from the house, and drifts of mature trees.
Wookey Hole

1hr 3 minutes - 35.1 miles

The show cave consists of a dry gallery connecting three large chambers, the first of which contains the Witch of Wookey formation. There are various high level passages leading off from these chambers, with two small exits above the tourist entrance. The River Axe is formed by the water entering the cave systems and flows through the third and first chambers, from which it flows to the resurgence, through two sumps 40 metres (130 ft) and 30 metres (98 ft) long, where it leaves the cave and enters the open air.
Cotswold Waterpark

58 minutes - 30.7 miles

The Cotswold Water Park is the United Kingdom's largest marl lake system. The lakes were created over the last 50 years by extraction of glacial Jurassic limestone gravel,which had eroded from the Cotswold Hills, and these filled naturally after working ceased in the early 1970s.

It is not a water fun park, as the name might suggest. It is a significant area for wildlife and particularly for wintering and breeding birds.
Lacock Abbey & Cloisters

19 minutes - 8.2 miles

Lacock Abbey, dedicated to St Mary and St Bernard, was founded in 1229 by the widowed Lady Ela the Countess of Salisbury.

Some interior sequences in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets were filmed at Lacock, including the cloister walk where Harry comes out from Professor Lockhart's room after serving detention and hears the basilisk. During four days in October 2007 Lacock was also used to film some scenes for the sixth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Cycling

Cycling is a permitted use for most of the length of the towpath. The Local Authorities fund Canal & River Trust for towpath access for all.

Contact the Canal and River Trust in Devizes (01380 722859) for the up-to-date position.
The towpath surface has been improved for cycling by funding through Sustrans  - www.sustrans.org.uk

The section from Reading to Bath is part of the National Cycling Route No. 4 from London to St Davids and for the most part uses the Kennet & Avon Canal towpath.
Walking

The Kennet & Avon Canal towpath provides a continuous Public Right of Way from Reading to Bristol. Continuing improvements to the towpath seek to provide a wide, safe and accessible surface and trouble-free walking conditions. Enjoy the abundance of wildlife seen from the roads, tracks and footpaths surrounding the Kennet and Avon Canal.
Local Activities
Bird Watching

Recent surveys have identified up to 103 different species of bird over the length of the canal. Of these 38 could be classified as specialist waterway birds with 14 species confirmed as breeding. Sand Martins nest in the drain-pipes set in the brick walls of the canal in the centre of Reading.
Fishing

The Kennet & Avon Canal is noted for the quality and variety of its fisheries. However, most of the fishing is under the control of Angling Clubs with only limited day licence angling available.

Coarse fishing is also available in adjacent gravel pits. In the upper Kennet valley, trout fishing is available and there are commercial trout farms close to the canal.

The improved water quality of the Thames estuary has provided conditions for the return of salmon to the River Thames. The weirs on the Kennet are now provided with special passes to enable salmon to reach potential spawning areas.
