Upton Marina Local Info
On the mighty River Severn, Britain’s longest river, lies Upton Marina, south of historic Worcester and north of Tewkesbury. Upton Marina offers secure pontoon and bankside moorings for all types of craft with hardstanding storage space and visitor berths, where you may take advantage of all the modern facilities you would expect from a large, well equipped, modern marina.
Cruising on the Severn opens up a wide variety of itineraries since it stretches 58 miles from Sharpness to Stourport and forms part of the Avon Ring linking the Worcester and Birmingham, and Staffs and Worcs canals. It is possible to reach Stratford-upon-Avon and moor opposite the Shakespeare Theatre. In fact there is hardly anywhere in the country that cannot be reached from Upton upon Severn by inland waterways – Birmingham “the Venice of the North” is a two day cruise away.
Opposite the marina lies Upton upon Severn, a delightful town with a wealth of fascinating old timbered Tudor and early Georgian buildings. It is also packed with good pubs and shops. As venue to local music festivals and inland waterway rallies, there is always plenty going on.
