Ripon Waterside & Marina

A haven for rare wildlife, it’s hard to imagine a more perfect spot to moor your boat

Situated in an idyllic location, close to the Yorkshire Dales, Ripon Waterside and Marina is on the Ripon canal at Bell Furrows Lock, with access to the River Ure via Oxclose Lock. It’s next to Ripon Racecourse, and an easy stroll along the towpath into the ancient cathedral city of Ripon. A haven for rare wildlife, it’s hard to imagine a more perfect spot to moor your boat. Cruiser, narrow boat and Dutch barge berths are available for residential; leisure and short-term mooring, and visitors are welcome. From the marina, you can cruise along the canal into the heart of Ripon or along the River Ure, a quiet, picturesque stretch of water, where the nature abounds.

Things to do in Yorkshire Dales and nearby

Ripon is one of the smallest cities in the UK. Marvel at the stunning cathedral, relax in the historic Market Square and visit the Heritage Centre, housed in Thorp Prebend House, which once played host to Mary Queen of Scots. It goes without saying that a day at the races is on the cards, but when the races are off, enjoy the spectacular wildlife and bird colonies on the racecourse lake and nature reserve. From Ripon Waterside & Marina, you can explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North York Moors National Park, as well as the Howardian Hills, the town of Harrogate and York. And, an insider’s tip, there’s excellent fishing on the canal and nearby rivers.
