Sutton Wharf is just on south of the village of Sutton Cheney, the village famous for Saint James church where Richard 3rd is said to have prayed before the Battle of Bosworth. If you head out of the village down Wharf Lane, you’ll find us in the Canal and River Trust car park.
The café is to the front of the building and to the rear is toilets, disabled toilets and free showers (meant for boaters). Well behaved dogs and muddy boots are welcome in the café as it’s a great place for walking!
The battlefield visitor centre is only a 30-minute stroll away through Ambion wood, and Shenton Station with steam trains and vintage diesels is just a little further. From either of these locations you can enjoy a return walk back along the canal towing path making it a very pleasant round trip.
Of course, you could just sit and watch the canal, there always something of interest going on, particularly in the summer months you could feed the many ducks that are always on the look out for food. We do sell floating duck and swan food as bread is known to be harmful to them.
Sutton wharf is popular with cyclists, motorcyclists, hikers, canoeists in fact it’s a great place to visit for everyone.
If you are holding an event and consider Sutton Wharf might be a suitable venue then please contact us, we will happily discuss your needs.
