For comprehensive details on how to get to our moorings and regarding wheelchair accessibility, please view our Access Statement.

Arriving by Car

There are a number of major roads including the M53, M56, M6 and A483 that proavide excellent links to Chester from North Wales, Liverpool, Manchester and the south of England.

Our moorings are signposted from some of these roads and in the city centre. Follow the brown road signs for “River trips”.

If you are driving to our moorings, please note that our postcode has now been changed from CH1 1SD to CH1 1SZ. For all postal correspondence, please use CH1 1SZ. Royal Mail have informed us that it can take time for internet databases to update their post code data and so if you are using Google Maps or a Sat Nav to try to find us, try using CH1 1SZ first but if this doesn’t work or register, then please use CH1 1SD but note that we are on Souters Lane and not Dee Lane. These two lanes previously shared the post code CH1 1SD and there is no vehicular access between them. CH1 1SD will still register for Souters Lane until the online databases are updated with our new post code. Please note that if you are driving to our moorings, you can only park at the Groves for one hour for free. This is a free public parking area and we cannot guarantee availability of spaces. There are also disabled parking spaces with a maximum stay of two hours next to our moorings.

Use our interactive Google Map to give you directions to our Sales Office, our moorings or the two closest car parks.
