Coronavirus update – 23 March 2020

Dear Guests

Union Wharf Marina is now having to temporarily close to all hire boat business. If you have booked a Day Boat, Gosling or one of the Boutique Narrowboats for the month of April, we are currently in the process of contacting you all by email or phone. All holidays will be transferred to another future date.

If you have emailed or left a voicemail, please be assured that we will read and listen to these and respond as soon as humanly possible. The marina office is not open to visitors and so if you would like to contact us, we would prefer you to email. Thank you for your understanding.

  • To rearrange a booking made through us, please email us with your alternative dates.
  • To rearrange a booking made through an outside booking agency, please contact them directly.

 

Thank you for your patience while we work through your enquiries.

Best wishes

Sharon, Aaran and the team at Union Wharf

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.
