The marina at Harborough Magna, near Rugby, will be operating throughout the winter season, offering Christmas and New Year hire. This marina offers a romantic two berth boat, ‘Jack’ (above) with a makeup double bed and cosy solid fuel stove. This hire base is ideal for novices with easy access to the lock free Ashby Canal, plus there are generally very few winter stoppages affecting this route.
Winter canal boat hire is also a perfect way to experience the nearby cities and Christmas markets, without the hassle of finding a car parking space! For example, the City of Bath is accessible from Bradford on Avon on the Kennet and Avon Canal. Or why not check out Warwick, just a short train journey from Birmingham city centre and an abundance of high street shops at The Bullring Shopping Centre.
