The Basingstoke Canal and its shaded towpath curves through Farnborough to the east.
This 31-mile waterway was completed in 1794, linking the Thames to the town of Basingstoke.
In Farnborough you can pay a visit to the Canal Centre, just on the eastern edge of town.
You could start a walk on the towpath here, pause for a hot drink at the cafe or board the 12-seater narrowboat “Rosebud” for a cruise on weekends in summer, as well as Wednesday and Friday in the school holidays.
