About The Club

St Pancras Cruising Club is a members’ club based in Camden that exists to promote pleasure cruising on UK inland waterways and to provide facilities for its members and others. Most Club members own boats but the Club also welcomes anyone who is interested in boating and inland waterways.

The Club provides non-residential moorings for around 60 boats in St Pancras Yacht Basin. For more information on joining the Club click the ""How to join" tab above.

Our members are active in promoting the interests of boaters through national and local waterways organisations such as the Canal & River Trust (CRT), the Inland Waterways Association (IWA), the Association of Waterways Cruising Clubs (AWCC) and others.

The Club is based at St Pancras Yacht Basin, which is located beside the Regent’s Canal and close to St Pancras International and Kings Cross Stations. The gardens, waterpoint and basin are maintained by members working on a voluntary basis, as are the facilities for passing boaters – pump out, fuel supply and portable toilet disposal. Monthly work parties are the focus for undertaking all of this work and also form a focus for social exchange when we sit to eat lunch together.

Cruising The Club is well known for its promotion of safe boating on the Thames tideway. As well as publishing a guide to the Tideway, Club cruises are regularly joined by other boaters, including experienced and inexperienced tideway cruisers. Comprehensive safety briefings precede each cruise, usually combined with a social evening. The Club also organises canal cruises, and non-tidal Thames cruises as a regular part of its cruising programme and welcomes members and non-members alike. For more information on the Club’s cruising programme please click the Cruising programme tab above. All boaters are welcome to join club cruises and events and there is no charge for participation.

Temporary Moorings are sometimes available. If you would like to enquire about a temporary mooring please contact the Harbour Master using the contact page, selecting the category "Mooring enquiries"., stating your boat's length and the dates that you require. The Club cannot accommodate wide beam boats. Permanent moorings are only available to Club members.

The St Pancras Waterpoint is managed and maintained by the Club. Since taking over the management of the building, the Club has organised a number of public and specialist events including talks, art exhibitions and open days: 1000s of visitors have thus been able to enjoy this unique building and the stunning views from the viewing platform.
