Come for the quiet, stay for the boat show
Take a break from city life by mooring up with us at Crick Marina – it’s super peaceful here. The calm waters and green fields make it feel almost like a country retreat, but you’ve still got all the modern stuff you’d expect from a first-class marina – so you can relax straight into your life on the water.
For a place this quiet, you’d be surprised how well connected it is. The town of Rugby is only a few miles away – it’s got loads of shops, bars and restaurants to explore. For more shopping options, you’ve got Northampton, which is a half-an-hour drive from the marina. It’s also a handy spot for commuters – the M1 is only a mile away.
The marina is also home to the famous Crick Boat Show, which gives you a chance to see some of the country’s best-looking boats (and eat some great food). Trust us, you’ll never want to leave.

Things to do in the local area
Crick Marina is a really peaceful spot to moor but there’s still loads to do nearby. For commuters, you’re only a two-minute drive from junction 18 of the M1 – although you wouldn’t know it once you’re here (seriously, it’s so quiet). You’ve also got Northampton and Rugby within easy reach, which you get to by car or bus (the bus stop is at the bottom of our drive).
But you don’t need to go that far for things to do – it’s only a couple of minutes’ walk into Crick, which is a lovely little village. You’ll find everything you need there, including a Post Office, Co-op, hairdresser’s, doctor’s surgery, café, a working men’s club and three great pubs. There’s also a monthly craft market, which you’ll find at the school on the main road, and a really old church (which is just nice to look at). When you’re walking into the village, be sure to stop by the garden centre too.
Perfectly placed on the Leicester Line of the Grand Union Canal, Crick Marina gives you 21 miles of lock-free cruising – along with easy access to all the major cruising routes. Whether you’re looking for relaxed weekends afloat or some serious time on the water, you’ve got it all here.
