Union Wharf Marina at market harborough home to Boutique Narrowboats 1

The marina at Union Wharf, Market Harborough is home to a fleet of hire boats and day boats, as well as a handful of leisure and private overnight moorings. The marina office welcomes boaters looking to book a holiday or day trip and is a comfortable place to check in on the first day of your booking.

The setting is a stunning one, with the lovely Waterfront restaurant and bar taking pride of place at the foot of the basin. Union Wharf has a rich history, too, acting as a distribution centre for coal, grain and wool in its heyday (read more about that here.)

Union Wharf has a lot to offer boating hirers. Free parking, a dedicated marina office for checking in and out and electric hook-up if you prefer to stay in the basin and explore the historic Market Harborough on foot. We also have experienced trainers to complete the handover with you and offer you support on planning a route if needed.

The Canal and River Trust also provides services here which include a water point, bin store and toilets and showers, although we aren’t able to offer a pump out service or fuel sales to the general public.

The marina acts as a base for ABC holiday boats as well as Canal Boat Club timeshares. Two Boutique Narrowboats – the first of their kind – have recently joined us here, and our four little day boats are ever-popular among families sharing a lovely day out.

We hope to see you soon!
