Welcome to a New breed of marina

Raising the standards

Pillings Lock Marina is a new breed of marina to the East Midlands area, Leicestershire. Situated ideally for cruising any part of the canal & river network, it's modern facilities raise the standard of a traditional inland marina and bring them into the 21st century.

It's setting is idyllic and peaceful whilst only being minutes away from main transport links. Driving from the marina will get you into the city centres of Nottingham, Leicester or Derby within 35 minutes.

The local waterways are jewel in the crown of rural Leicestershire. We believe that our facilties have so far encouraged many new people to take up boating and enjoy all the area offers.
