Barton Marina, situated on the Trent & Mersey canal, is the ideal central base to explore the Midland’s waterways and beyond.

Purpose built in 2001, Barton Marina is privately owned and we are very proud of the reputation we maintain as the finest inland waterways marina in the UK. Permanent, centrally- heated buildings house our showers, laundrette and marina office. Boat sales and maintenance facilities available.

The boat marina forms part of an 85 acre National Forest woodland site. Visitors can wander around the two large lakes to watch and enjoy the flourishing wildlife.

The Marina Cafe

Nestled next to the Marina Office you will find this warm and welcoming café where you can enjoy views of the boats on the Marina

The constant presence of boaters, cyclist, walkers and tourists have turned this café into a bustling enterprise and somewhere you can go for breakfast, a lunchtime snack or afternoon tea and cake.

The cafe also also offers a take-away service. Telephone your order for collection 01283 711666.
