I needed to change the date I’d booked for. The member of staff I spoke with on the phone was very helpful and amended the date without any fuss. The phone was also answered promptly and efficiently. Thank you; I’m now looking forward to the cruise. 😊

About Norbury Wharf

Established in 2005, Norbury Wharf has since developed a marina and boatyard offering a series of public trips and themed events, including murder mysteries and Santa cruises. The Shropshire Star is available for special celebrations, and narrowboats can be hired for cruising at one's own speed. The company is based on the Shropshire Union Canal, working as a convenient base for cruises around the Four Counties Ring. Those with their own boats can use the services of the Wharf's painters, who beautify vessels with traditional canal art and sign-writing.
