Great narrow boat cruises in North-West England
We are in an excellent location close to the Cheshire Ring, Llangollen Canal, Shropshire Union and Trent and Mersey, so there are plenty of places awaiting a leisurely visit.
Here are a few suggestions to whet your appetite:
And don’t forget, our marina is located just outside historic Nantwich. Historic buildings, a local zoo, arts and crafts and even an ice cream farm – there’s plenty to see and do when you visit Venetian Marina.
- If you’ve got a week to spare, the Llangollen Canal is a 48-mile trip and a very popular route. You’ll get amazing views of the Pontcyssyllte aqueduct, Britain’s longest and highest aqueduct and a World Heritage Site.
- The Cheshire Ring is 97 miles long, so it’s also popular if you have plenty of time to spare. This is a journey of contrasts – from the cityscape of Manchester through to the tranquillity of the Peak Forest.
- If you’re pushed for time, Chester is only 15 miles away, although you’ll need to navigate the Bunbury locks. It’s a beautiful city and there’s so much to do – great shopping, a day at the races, a Roman amphitheatre or strolling around parks and gardens.
- Audlem is another popular destination from our marina. Part of the Four Counties Ring and with its 15 locks, the highlights are Audlem Mill and village.
