Take a look around Packet Boat Waterside & Marina


Lock-free cruising to London                     

Packet Boat is a modern marina on a stretch of the Grand Union canal that has 23 miles free from locks. It’s ideal for a leisure mooring, where you can spend weekends and holidays cruising the canal with ease. Relaxing on your boat in the marina, surrounded by leafy parkland, you can easily forget that the bustle of London is less than 20 miles away. With great transport links, it’s also a prime location for a residential mooring, enabling you to work in the city and escape to peace and tranquillity at the end of each day.

Things to do in Middlesex and nearby

Visit London by boat and enjoy Little Venice, Camden Market and Portobello Road. Or take the train for a day trip and see the sights. Closer to Packet Boat Marina, Harmondsworth Barn, described as the "Cathedral of Middlesex" by Sir John Betjeman, is a Grade 1 listed, medieval building that will take your breath away. For outdoor fun, spend an afternoon at Colne Valley Regional Park, a pretty and characterful oasis with riverside walks, children’s play areas and a golf course. For other sports, Wembley Stadium is just 14 miles and Ascot Racecourse is 17 miles.
