First time visiting the crick boat show and I was very surprised at how good it was, was very busy, so could of been a little bigger, to make it easier to walk around. Will definitely be returning next year.

If it's a lukewarm welcome you're after then this is the place for you! A nice marina staffed and spoilt by people who are only interested in relieving you of your money. Give it a miss.More

Visited this Show for the second time and it goes from strength to strength. Would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone vaguely interested in a day out or canals and boats.

Often admired Crick marina whilst cruising by. Good location whether by boat or road. Friendly staff, good parking and offers a book/dvd exchange library. Good launderette facilities and easy access to services.

Beautiful place or a sunny day to watch the barges. Staff very helpful and informative. Crick marina open day at the end of May sounds amazing if the weather is fine and ll worth a visit

We attended the boat show with the aim of getting a feel of what Narrowboats loked and felt like today - what advances were being made and to meet boat builders and owners to get their thoughts of life on the water as extended cruisers....More

Quite expensive at £15 per person after having recommended family and friends to attend too. However good to see many boats in the marina, but pity all the excursions were fully booked. Craft market expensive. Olive and Nut stand outrageously expensive! Maybe next year have...More

The Boat Show is staged by Waterways World Ltd, who set the prices and determine the content. Crick Marina simply provides part of the Show site.

We love attending different craft fairs in the UK and this was the most hefty entry fee we paid - £15 per person. Craft/Food stalls are similar to other places except it mainly aims for the narrowboat/canal enthusiasts. Hope the monies go to the right...More
