It is lovely to walk down by the river at Trent Lock, the photography is great, and don't forget to take the dog with you as he will enjoy a good walk along the river ,The tea rooms are excellent, as are the restaurant, also a good walk down the canal will bring you to Long Eaton and it has swans and ducks for the children to see.

Trent Lock is where the River Soar meets the River Trent, and where the Erewash and Cranfleet canals also reach the Trent. Consequently, it is the point where the counties of Nottingham, Leicester and Derby all meet. We visited on a lovely sunny afternoon and had a great walk alongside the Cranfleet Canal. There are at least two pubs plus some tearooms so there are plenty of opportunities to get refreshments. There is also a free car park and some loos.

Stayed in a beautiful narrow boat (see AirBnb) and I agree with everyone else.

A very nice, calm and beautiful stretch of waterway with swans and ducks outside your front door.

No noise at at all, even at the weekend and everyone we meet have all been very friendly

What a lovely well looked after area. A pub, a restaurant and a tea room, what more could you ask for whilst out on a nice sunny stroll along the canal path. Lots of jolly boaters out with a happy wave and friendly greeting.

I often take my toddler here to feed the ducks and its such a lovely quiet place to spend an hour, bonus is he's mad on trains,planes and boats so it's perfect as you can see the trains going by into notts, watch the planes coming in and out of East mids airport and there are loads of canal boats moored up. It's perfect for us.
I also like the fact you don't have loads of dogs running around ( nothing against dogs but am wary with them around my 3 year old!). In the summer there are some tea rooms that are open and z couple of pubs (bit pricey)
Lovely little hidden gem and a bonus the parkings free and loads of spaces.
