A warm welcome to Mercia Swan Canal Boat Trips. We are based at Mercia Marina Willington in the beautiful County of Derbyshire within Europes largest inland marina. Join us for a leisurely cruise along the picturesque Trent and Mersey canal and escape for a while from the hurly burly of our modern day hectic lifestyle.  We offer a regular return service ( unless prior booked for private charter ) from the marina to  the local village of Willington or alternatively a longer trip to Stenson Lock in the opposite direction,where you can refresh yourself with a drink at the Stenson Bubble Inn or maybe tea and cake at the Stenson Lock Cafe.

We are also available for private charters of up to 12 people, and always will try to cater for most requirements. We can accommodate various groups and celebrations. For example
- Senior citizen groups,WI, U3A, Birthdays, Weddings,Proms, Champagne hamper cruises Corporate events,Theme evenings etc.Whatever your special event we will try to oblige.
On the private charters we are able to venture further afield to either Swarkestone, heading East or Horninglow heading West, although you are free to choose the more local destinations.
