General information

The Royalty Moorings reach down from the River Avon and Stour and cover approximately three-quarters of the harbour. We manage a wide range of moorings in this area, from bankside and pontoon moorings in the river to self laid moorings in the harbour.

Full details and current prices are in this leaflet:

Royalty Moorings 2017/18

We aim to maintain 100% occupancy of our moorings and we let from our waiting list when a mooring becomes vacant. However, we sometimes have moorings available that do not suit the requirements of those on the waiting list.

Should you get a water meter?

Water meters have important benefits for you, for us and for the environment as you can have more control over your water use and leaks are easier to detect.
