The new-look Clarence Dock

On the waterfront

Clarence Dock has had a £500,000 refit creating new mooring facilities right in the city centre.

Just off the River Aire in the heart of Leeds, the waterspace lies at the centre of the £260m Clarence Dock development and comprises three distinct areas.

The main dock has leisure berths for up to 20 boats, also adjacent to the Royal Armouries are overnight visitor moorings, and a waterbus stop providing the berth for Leeds City Cruisers' service between the dock and the city centre.

The smaller dock has six residential berths for houseboat living and the commercial dock has berths for up to nine retail or office boats.

This is the latest stage in the transformation of Clarence Dock and more restaurants and cafes will be opening at the development from August 2008. An hotel, coffee shop and mini-supermarket are already open for business around the dock.

Janet Baverstock of British Waterways Yorkshire, says: “We are delighted to be... welcoming boats back to Clarence Dock.  We’ve already had great feedback on the quality of the new berths from customers who have been using the overnight visitor moorings adjacent to the museum."
