Fox Narrowboats

Self drive Day hire Narrowboats

Our day boat hire lets you meander along the tranquil Fenland waterways through the town of March and eastwards towards the village of Upwell. Pass through the Marmont Priory lock and the village unfolds before you. Upwell is one of the most picturesque villages in the Fenland.

Stop at the Five Bells for a pub lunch or travel on to Outwell basin for a picnic at the former junction of the Wisbech canal. 

For those commencing their journey at 9:30am, there will be time to walk from Outwell basin to the Crown Lodge hotel, for lunch in their AA rosette-winning restaurant. Here you ‘wind’ (turn) your boat and head back to our base at March (approx. 6 ½ cruising hours return). Alternatively head west passing Floods Ferry Marina Park and crossing the Greenwich Meridian before arriving at Ashline Lock and the town of Whittlesey. ‘Wind’ your boat above the lock, picnic in Manor Fields before commencing the return journey to March.

Boats are equipped with hob, fridge, crockery & cutlery for picnics and also have a WC. Lifejackets are provided and tuition is given.
