Aqua Narrow Boats

Fancy a relaxing narrowboat holiday? Aqua narrowboats is Barton Marina’s chosen partner to operate 5-star holiday cruises around the Midlands canal network.

Whether you’re on a short break to the historic stately home Shugborough Hall, or heading further afield to Birmingham on the Black Country Ring, you can be assured of a warm welcome when you check in at Barton Marina. Aqua’s handover team will teach the skipper how to handle the boat, and show the whole crew how to work a lock.

For the more ambitious boater, Aqua recommends a two week cruise along the gorgeous Four Counties Ring taking in Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

The holiday season runs from early March to late October. For everything you need to know about Aqua’s luxury cruises, click here
