Welcome to Shakespeare Marina, situated in the heart of the picturesque town of Stratford-upon-Avon.
This beautiful marina is the perfect place for boat owners to moor their vessels while exploring the local area, and for visitors to enjoy a tranquil and relaxing stay.
Shakespeare Marina is a modern, purpose-built marina that offers a range of excellent facilities and services for boat owners and visitors. The marina has 250 berths, all with water and electricity hook-ups, and a wide range of facilities including showers, toilets, laundry facilities, and a chandlery.
With a lifelong love of narrow boating combined with senior level experience at the Canal and River Trust Ruth Noon is delighted to join the team as Shakespeare Marina Manager.
Having previously established and run the hugely popular Stratford River Festival Ruth is excited to develop the marinas potential. Her immediate priority is to encourage new moorers and offer great customer service.
David Raby joined the team at Shakespeare Marina in August 2022 in the role of warden.
As keen boater and proud owner of a 60ft wide beam boat, David brings a wealth of practical experience from his previous roles including team leader within the motor industry and as a business driving lecturer. He is at his happiest tinkering on his boat or baking cakes.
The timber clad building has a pitched slate roof and features a gable end window, designed to display the full beauty of the marina, the River Avon and the surrounding countryside.
At the front of the building, there is a communal area and an office. As the gable end window draws in the natural light, this makes a peaceful place to sit, relax and enjoy the wonderful view of the marina, the River Avon and the surrounding countryside. It is also an ideal place to meet with friends, have a drink or even just wait for your laundry to finish.
Fuel, coal, gas and wood is sold at the marina so all means of power will be at your fingertips, allowing you to restock easily and be prepared for all eventualities.
There are state-of-the-art showers with disabled access offering warm showers and the opportunity to freshen up after a long boat adventure. The loos are accessible too and there is also an Elsan disposal unit. The laundry facilities will meet everyone’s needs, quickly and efficiently.
The facilities building is intended to take good care of everyone’s needs, allowing all boaters to either stay comfortably in the beautiful, tranquil environment of the marina or set off on an exciting adventure along the waterways.
