On the mighty River Severn, Britain’s longest river, lies Upton Marina, south of historic Worcester and north of Tewkesbury, Upton Marina offers secure pontoon and bankside moorings for all types of craft with hardstanding storage space and visitor berths, where you may take advantage of all the modern facilities you would expect from a large, well equipped, modern marina. It is also home to a fleet of holiday hire boats.
Cruising on the Severn offers a variety of itineraries since it stretches 58 miles from Sharpness to Stourport and forms part of the Avon Ring linking the Worcester and Birmingham, Staffs and Worcs canals.
It is possible to reach Stratford-upon-Avon and moor up opposite the Shakespeare Theatre. In fact there is hardly anywhere in the country that cannot be reached from Upton upon Severn by inland waterways. For more adventurous cruising southwards, it is a day’s run to the Bristol Channel and open waters.
