Recently I visited Mercia Marina with my other half, our friend and her son, and what a fantastic day out it was!
Mercia is Europe largest inland Marina, it was constructed in 2008, it was previously just a fishing lake.
But now it has so much to offer.
So we set about exploring.
We had a walk around the little shopping village they have, which has some clothing outlets and cute little gift shops.
Had lunch in the pub overlooking the dock and had a trip on a barge.
Then went for a walk on one of the many trails.
We then all decided to embark on one of the boat trips.
Our barge trip took us on a two hour round trip of the surrounding canal, explaining the history of the canal and the passing barges, we stopped off at a little pub on the way back (for a cheeky Malibu and Coke.) and it was a complete bargain at £12pp and so relaxing, I never knew I needed a boat so bad! I could of stayed on it all day.
If you live close enough I definitely recommend it for a great day out.
I’d visit again just for the boat trip alone!
Until next time,
