Routes and Itineraries

The marina at Union Wharf is at the end of the Market Harborough arm. This is a peaceful stretch of the Grand Union canal which meanders through the rural Leicestershire landscape.

From Union Wharf you will soon reach the iconic Foxton Locks. From there, take a scenic route up to Leicester or choose a rural southern itinerary to Crick or Braunston.

New to Narrowboating?

No experience is necessary to holiday on a narrowboat and we provide all the training you need.

Many of our hirers have never set foot on a canal boat before their holiday and so you are in good company. Although we offer a comprehensive handover for all our guests, we are happy to do a bit of extra ‘hand-holding’ for novices who come aboard.
