A six mile trek up the River Avon brings you to Bristol's only fully serviced marina. Situated on the south side of the Floating Harbour, the Bristol Marina is flanked by the Baltic Wharf Water Leisure Centre to the West and Brunel’s SS Great Britain to the East.
The Bristol Marina is not only accessible from the sea, but also from the inland waterways of the Kennet and Avon Canal which leads all the way to London thus making it possible to circumnavigate the South Coast of England.
The marina’s been in operation since the 80’s and has a capacity of 100 pontoons berths and 70 shore berths for vessels up to 20m LOA. For getting into town by foot the marina is unfortunately on the wrong side of the Floating Harbour involving a long detour around the dock. However, bus and ferry services are just a few minutes walk from the marina's main entrance where the City of Bristol is renowned for its maritime culture and tourists attractions, along with its large choice of restaurants, clubs, pubs, and shopping malls.
There is a Petrol Station on the opposite side of the dock, 2 minutes walk from the mooring/ferry stop, and a Chandlery and Sailmakers on site.
There is a local shop with an ATM 300m from the Marina.
