Black Shed Licensed Cafe

The Black Shed just across the road beside the canal is a licensed cafe where visitors can relax beside the canal and enjoy a drink, something to eat, or do something a little different.

You can hire a bike from Adventure Bike Hire Slimbridge or join them on a Pedal and Pub tour.

Perhaps you'd like to take paddle boarding lessons on the canal from SUP?

Something altogether more relaxing is Gloucester Narrow Boats who have got their day boats for you to hire.

Gloucester-Sharpness Canal
Tudor Caravan Park: Gloucester-Sharpness canal near The Black Shed

Tudor Caravan Park is right alongside the beatutiful Gloucester-Sharpness canal at 'The Patch'.

The canal was once the broadest and deepest in the world. Even today, it stands out from other navigations because of its sheer scale and impressive engineering.

Its immense swing-bridges and ornate bridge-keepers’ houses add to its unique identity. It connects Gloucester to Sharpness, allowing boats to bypass a treacherous stretch of the River Severn.

From the canal, there are spectacular views of the Severn Estuary, the Forest of Dean and the Cotswolds.

Tudor Caravan Park - Cycling along the towpath

The towpath is a lovely peaceful causeway for walking and cycling. The 'Severn Way' National Walking Trail passes along the canal beside Tudor Caravan Park, as does National Cycling Trail No.41

Many interesting boats & ships can be seen on on the canal, in the past we have seen frigates, a lighthouse ship, paddle-steamer, and every two years we see the amazing Tall Ships Festival at Gloucester where all the huge ships sail past Tudor Caravan Park on their way to the festival.
