The Best Canal Holiday Destinations for 2022

Now 2022 is finally here we can all start looking forward to hitting the canals for yet another summer of exploring.

Jumping on a barge and embarking on a journey is one of our favourite things to do, especially when the sun’s out. It allows us to enjoy our boat, see some incredible sights and discover new and exciting locations, all thanks to the simple to navigate canal network, which stretches across the entire country.

So, where should you visit this year?


Tattenhall Marina 44

Tattenhall Marina is a beautiful marina situated on the Shropshire Union Canal, it’s a great location to visit as it’s within reach of many exciting cities and things to do along the way. It’s also very easy to get to, via boat, or even via road and rail if you’re looking to start your boat journey here!

We’ve even recently launched a number of very unique and exciting floating pods at Tattenhall Marina which make for excellent mini breaks and the perfect chance to get away and escape to somewhere a little different.


Rmv Marina 1

Roydon Marina Village is situated in the Lee Valley and gives visitors access to a range of canal and river routes. Located in Essex, Roydon Marina Village is close enough to London to allow guests to explore the sights of the capital, but situated in a distant and tranquil location that allows you to escape the bright lights of the city when you need to - it really is the best of both worlds. At Roydon Marina village, there’s a wealth of things to see and do, from exploring the local countryside to shopping in the local villages and even enjoying our on-site facilities.

LLE SAUL JUNCTION 5971

Saul Junction Marina is in the stunning surroundings of the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal and Stroud water Canal. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of mooring in an area of outstanding natural beauty whilst being easily accessible to key commuter cities of Gloucester and Bristol.

Hire your very own canal boat for the ultimate first time holiday on the water, or if you are not quite that brave take our day boat and enjoy the adventure of exploring the stunning canals and countryside.

The nearby village of Frampton-on-Severn is less than 5 minutes from the marina and is home to a post office and village shop, doctors and two local pubs. The nearest supermarkets can be found a short drive away in Stroud or Quedgeley.

Great Haywood 2003

Great Haywood Marina is situated on the Trent and Mersey in the peaceful surroundings of rural Staffordshire. Close to the junction of the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal, Great Haywood Marina offers canal boaters the perfect location to moor their boat.

With a superb selection of services and facilities available including owners lounge, chandlery, fuel, pump out, calor gas, coal, laundry, WIFI and workshop, we can guarantee you a relaxed and comfortable stay.

Escaping to a canalside destination is the perfect way to spend your holidays in 2022, whether it’s by boat, floating pod or other means, you’re able to sit back, relax and take in the beautiful scenery which surrounds our rivers and canals, you never know, you might even discover a new love for boating too!
