Summer on the Bridgewater Way

If you're visiting one of the many attractions at TraffordCity this summer, why not combine that with some relaxing family time by the canal?

Bridgewater Way is the towpath that runs along the Bridgewater Canal and is easily accessible from TraffordCity just behind the car park at Trafford Palazzo. It's perfect for pottering by the water, pram pushing, feeding the ducks, waving at boats or teaching kids to ride their bikes.
