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.
