Collins Nicholson Waterways Guides and Waterways Map of Great Britain are the number one bestselling waterway resources, covering the entire network of canal and river navigations in England, Scotland and Wales, including newly restored and opened canals and rivers. The guides and map have been republished, fully updated, with extra information, for this, their 40th anniversary year.
The colour Ordnance Survey® maps within the guides clearly show locks, towpaths and boating facilities. There are comprehensive navigational notes as well as descriptions of the towns and villages, pubs and restaurants alongside the waterways, and details of navigation authorities. In addition, notes on the history and background to each canal are included in each guide, as well as opportunities for walking and cycling, and new for these editions, notes on the wildlife to be found along the waterways.
In print for 40 years, the Collins Nicholson Waterways Guides and Waterways Map of Great Britain have always been a vital part of journeys along Britain’s canals and rivers. They are ideal for anyone with an interest in Britain’s inland waterways: from experienced boaters to those planning their first boat trip, as well as walkers, cyclists and visitors. In the year of the ‘staycation’ these books are must-haves.

"Taste in guide books can be a very personal thing, but few serious boaters will venture out without a Nicholson's Guide. There is a wealth of information that even the most experienced cannot hope to keep abreast of, and the guides are welcome valuable for cyclists and walkers too." The Inland Waterways Association.
