Moorings on the waterways fall into different categories:
- British Waterways moorings
- Bottom of garden moorings.
- Club Moorings.
There's a very wide choice of moorings available throughout the British Waterways network.
For short and overnight stops, there are very few restrictions - you may tie up in open countryside, or choose one of the increasing number of designated visitor mooring sites.
For people owning their own boat, finding a permanent mooring is very important. Unless you're planning to cruise continuously around the waterways, there's a legal requirement for you to have a place where you can keep the boat while you're not using it for cruising.
