Welcome

Narrowboats Peggy and Maggie outside Training Centre

Willow Wren Training is the leading canal based RYA and MCA approved training centre providing a range of waterways related training courses as we have for over 20 years. Our customers include organisations such as Training RoomCanal & River Trust, Environment Agency, Avon Navigation Trust and thousands of individuals.

Thanks to the shear volume of people that use WWT every year we are able to pass on a saving and hold our prices yet again for 2016. That makes our boat handling course prices the lowest of the leading UK training schools.

Our training facilities are second to none. Our boats are modern, clean, tidy and fit for purpose. The training centre was purpose built, is less than two years old, big enough for any course we do and the chairs so comfortable you could fall asleep, (but you won't).
