CHIRK MARINA

Chirk Marina
Hire a Canal Barge or Narrow Boat from Chirk Marina.


To hire a narrowboat or canal barge for a short break, week or even 14 nights means an adventure filled to the brim with peaceful excitement.

Hire a Canalboat’s base at Chirk Marina, in English/Welsh border country, opens the (water) way to an incredible hire boat holiday experience that will forever live in your memories.

Close to the most iconic canal structure of them all, itself a UNESCO World Heritage site, the soaring and show stopping Pontcysyllte Aqueduct stretches across the Dee Valley. From Chirk, you are perfectly placed for cruising through the dramatic castle covered Welsh Marches.  The river side Eisteddfod town of Llangollen is just a day’s boating away and set amongst brooding hills and a heritage steam railway. Alternatively devote the week to explore the pastoral idyll of Shropshire countryside through which this delightful waterway gently meanders with yet another superb aqueduct at Chirk, a tunnel near Ellesmere and the amazing staircase locks at Grindley Brook. Throw in stunning countryside, friendly and welcoming pubs and you have the recipe for a wonderful canal holiday when you book your holiday boat with us.

You may wish to use the marina as a base or mix and match land based exploration with some cruising. You choose what best suits your canal holiday needs. Bring your favourite CDs and DVDs. Canalside pubs are great places to eat and relax while downing a refreshing glass of good ale. If you prefer your own cooking, there is a grill, oven, four burner hob and even a microwave.

Expect a warm welcome from the friendly staff at Chirk. Their knowledge and advice will be invaluable and they’ll patiently teach you all that they are able about getting the best out of your canalboat holiday. Set out on your cruise, brimming with excitement and confidence. Our narrowboats are instantly recognised on the waterways with the winning combination of friendly colours and happy holiday crew.
