Regrettably, following lengthy discussions between the operator of the base and Black Prince Holidays, it has been decided to recall all of our existing boats from the London base.
This means that we will not be offering any canal boat holidays from Willowtree Marina for 2016.
There are various reasons for this, including not being able to navigate on the Lower Tidal Thames due to revised guidance from the Port of London Authority on new licensing and structural build requirements, being able to ensure we have the right maintenance support in the busy London area, the age of the fleet stationed there, and to ongoing challenges with mooring and congestion across the waterways of London.
Black Prince have enjoyed operating in London for a number of years now and will continue to explore a number of potential opportunities with Willowtree Marina with an eye on the near future.
In the short term, this change will allow us to focus on our nine other locations across England, Scotland and Wales and continue to offer the very best canal boat holiday experience.
