Stratford-upon-Avon gets new marina

A new marina is to be situated on the River Avon in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, home of the famous playwright and poet William Shakespeare.

The Shakespeare Marina will be situated within a short walking distance of the picturesque town in the county of Warwickshire, perfectly placed for boating enthusiasts. The marina will have easy access to four cruising rings centred on the charming River Avon and will provide a great base in the Midlands.

Apparently there will be 250 canal boat berths, within an elegant landscape to mirror its rural and historic surroundings, which will include full-length, non-slip jetties to accommodate both narrowboats and wide beam boats. The marina will have a modern facilities building; services will include a shower block with laundry, fuelling and pump out facilities and electricity and water.

The marina is planning to open in the autumn. It is open for bookings and with earthworks about to commence, the landscape is really starting to come to life.
