Food glorious food
There are nice spots for picnics at each museum and cafés at Ellesmere Port and Stoke Bruerne - each with lovely canal views.
At Gloucester, Coots Café Bar just next to the museum will be happy to make you welcome.
Walk off your lunch!
At each museum, there's plenty of space to run around and let off steam, or for a more sedate saunter after lunch.

Prepare yourself for a great waterside adventure!
