Partnership Opportunities

Willowtree Marina lies at the heart of 45 lock-free kilometres in West London. From here the bustling excitement of Camden Town or the tranquillity of rural Middlesex and Buckinghamshire can be reached without ever having to negotiate a lock. Unlike the Thames, this stretch of London's Canals is largely unaffected by flood waters. In addition, road dual carriageways come almost to the main gate and connect with the A40/M40, M4 and M25 motorways, encompassing nearly five million people who live within a ten mile radius.

Willowtree Marina is clearly the ideal canal base for London and to address this we have set up the Willowtree Business Community, a 'village' of viable canal-orientated businesses.


Start up support given would include help in business plan preparation, marketing strategy, help in addressing training requirements to be provided by Business Link London, identification of available grants and an introduction to financial support. Various numbers of business possibilities have been identified and we are talking to partners about some of these. The projects include:

  • Multipurpose cruising venue and floating classroom
  • Canal-based professional clown company
  • Hotel boat fleet
  • Hire boat fleet
  • Canal-based cycle tours
  • Canal-based mobile boat mechanic service
  • Small boat haulage service
  • Booking agency

Many possibilities exist for developing these and other projects - much of course will depend on the particular direction and concept of each interested party.


Willowtree Business Community, based at Willowtree Marina, is the ideal starting point for an entrepreneur with the right skills and commitment who either wishes to start his or her own business, or to relocate nearer the capital city.


If you feel this could be a venture worth getting excited over then e-mail me, Arthur Bennett Marina Manager, on the link below, or you could ring me on +44(020)-8841-6585. Alternatively write to me at Willowtree Marina, West Quay Drive, Yeading, Middlesex UB4 9TB, UK.

Just think, this could be the opportunity of a lifetime.
