Welcome to Living On A Narrowboat. You’ll find plentty of information throughout the site about life on the cut and what it’s really like to move from dry land to a life on the waterways of Britain. You may want to spend all of your time exploring more than 2,200 miles of navigable waterways but, at some time, you’re going to need a place to moor your boat.

On the canal system you can moor your narrowboat just about anywhere on the system for a night or two but if you want a permannt mooring in the UK you need to rent yourself some space. This can take the form of a simple canal side moring with no facilities or, at the other end of the scale, you can secure a berth in a secure gated marina with easy access to a full range of services for you and your boat.

All of the narrowboat friendly marinas on the English/Welsh canal network are listed on this site. You can use the menu above to search for a marina by your preferred canal or river or, if you are looking for details on a particular marna, simply enter the marina name in the search box on the right. (And if, by some remote chance, the marina you’re looking for isn’t listed please let me know as soon as you can so I can add it for you.
