Can I paddle anywhere?
In the UK, you need a license to paddle in most of the waterways, rivers, lakes, etc.
BCU membership (Canoe England, Canoe Wales, Scotland Canoe Association and the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland) includes a licence to paddle on 5000km of Britain's waterways and canals.

Not all inland water is open to canoeists, some are privately owned or is bounded by land which is private, so do check beforehand. See Useful Web sites page.

In other countries, do check with your national kayak organisations and waterway / off-shore agencies etc.

Petition: Make English and Welsh waterways a public right of way
This should be of interest to you all. Please consider signing the petition as an interested individual.

Currently if you'd like to enjoy English and Welsh waterways you're likely to be accused of trespassing because the bed and banks of rivers and canals are privately owned, unlike Scotland and the rest of the world.
  We need at least 10,000 signatures to make the government respond to this petition
