Union Wharf with its impressively refurbished canal warehouses and excellent restaurant is a hive of quality boating activity. Situated in Market Harborough, Leicestershire.

This pretty and traditional English market town dates from 1203. Enjoy delicious food and fine ales in the town's historic coaching inns or just potter about the market and the many fine family owned shops in this gem of a town.

It is just two hours cruising to the 'Leicester Line' of the Grand Union Canal from this beautiful and tastefully restored terminus of the 'Market Harborough Arm'.

The friendly lock keeper at the famous Foxton Locks opens the gate to the world ahead and away you go.

The Foxton Locks are 10 locks in the form of a staircase, and the staff here will guide you through the locks, so there is no need to panic!
