Heart Of England Narrowboats

I am Neil Phillips owner of Heart of England Narrowboats, my passion for boats started when I was just 7 years old when my parents took me away on the Norfolk Broads, since that first trip I have progressed to living on a narrowboats for a number of years and also qualifying as a RYA Yacht master cruising instructor. I have over 15000 miles of sailing under my belt and to this day I still love every moment I spend on board any type of boat. As I approach retirement, I knew I had to get directly involved in our wonderful canal systems and Heart of England was set up at our base in Tamworth. My passion for quality is your guarantee that our boats will always be of the highest quality and presented fully equipped for you to enjoy your time on board to the maximum.

We are centrally located at Glascote Basin in Tamworth which is just five minutes off the M42 junction 10. We can offer many cruising routes including one of the most well known the Warwickshire Ring. However, if it’s just a short break you are after, why not meander on down to the Swan Pub at Fradley Junction. Reputedly the most photographed pub on the canal system. See our route suggestions for more ideas.

Feel free to browse our website and book online, but if like us you like to talk, call us on 0800 0096944 during office hours and we will always have time to discuss your specific needs and answer any questions you may have.

For our overseas visitors we can arrange collection from most UK airports. If arriving by Train the nearest station is Tamworth , just a five-minute taxi journey away.
