Nottingham Narrow Boat Project

Located in the City Centre on the Nottingham Canal, the Narrowboat Project began over 40 years ago, back in 1974, and has established itself as one of the most respected community boat projects in the country.

Offering a safe, accessible programme, we aim to provide a waterways experience including boat helming, working the canal's locks, water safety and a general taste of waterways life.

All of our trips with participants will offer new experiences and learning and the opportunity to sit back, relax and see Nottinghamshire from a different angle.

We offer half day (4hrs), full day (6hrs) and residential trips for parties of up to 24 people to experience the waterways from our two 70ft narrowboats, Megan and Tinkers Leen, both staffed by our highly experienced skippers.

The Project is registered with the Canal And River Trust and is a member of the National Community Boating Association.

Please contact the Narrow Boat Project for more information and for prices/availability by email or telephone 0115 947 6202.
