A pretty marina with lock-free cruising
Galgate Waterside and Marina is situated on the Lancaster Canal, notable for being close to the coast and lock-free. In a picturesque setting at the edge of the village, it’s in a great location for exploring the north west, or for simply relaxing with a glass of wine on your boat. Galgate is a well-serviced marina, and the absence of locks on the canal makes it ideal if you enjoy weekend and holiday cruising. It is convenient for Lancaster, Preston and Blackpool, as well as the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.

Things to do in Lancashire and nearby
Galgate Waterside & Marina is a great base for exploring the north west. Take to the great outdoors, heading for the familiar beauty of the Lake District, the southern reaches of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, or the undeservedly less well-known Forest of Bowland. Follow the Pendle Witch Trail to explore the history and the geography of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is on your doorstep at the marina. You’re also close enough for a day trip to the seaside at Blackpool or Morecambe, and Lancaster town has great shopping, an imposing castle and a riverside Maritime Museum.
