Over the past few years the surrounding area has been developed to give public access from City Road which makes the Basin an ideal and unique venue for events, both corporate and public.

As a charity, Islington Boat Club does its very best to raise funds for itself by organising or facilitating private events on this beautiful and rare expanse of water. We are a non-profit organisation; any money raised is for keeping our facilities open for the local community.

If you are interested in hiring any part of the club please email
