Disability Access Information

Parking is available in the local roads after 10am or at the nearby Rickmansworth Aquadrome or Tesco. We are a short 10 minute walk from Rickmansworth Station which is served by both the Metropolitan & Chiltern Line railways. The towpath is accessible but there are a few steps to come down to the canal side. Our boat unfortunately is not wheelchair accessible but those with less mobility can still get on the boat if they can manage a couple of steps.
