CA House

By kind permission of the Cruising Association, we are holding our Laying Up Lunch at their headquarters by Limehouse Basin. Situated in its scenic and historic location close to the River Thames. This will be an ideal opportunity to discuss plans for the forthcoming year afloat and ashore with friends from the Yacht Club. The most attractive way to travel there is by Thames River Bus to Canary Wharf pier and walk back along the shore to Limehouse..  

 

For those attending by boat, the tides are ideal for this weekend with HW Limehouse on Saturday 22nd at about 19.10. For a Monday 24th morning departure HW Limehouse is about 08.50. Berths on the pontoons in Limehouse Basin can be booked in advance and for the early evening arrival the lock will also need to be pre-booked with at least 48 hours notice.    (more details below)



Map to CA House

Cruising Association House is situated next to Limehouse Basin in London's Docklands. 

By Public Transport

If you are coming by public transport the easiest is Limehouse Station on the D.L.R which is only 2 stops from either Bank or Tower Gateway, and from the other direction, 3 short stops from Canary Wharf.

From Limehouse Station on foot: Walk down the stairs and then down the steps ahead of you.  Turn left and left again, and walk along Ratcliffe Street.  At the end of the street, cross over the road ahead (Branch Road) and turn right (not down the Rotherhithe Tunnel!).

After the first block of flats, turn left through the courtyard.  The marina should be ahead of you.  Follow the path around the right-hand side of the marina, and continue past the octagonal building (the Lock Office).  Cross the Lock and turn left, and CA House is the brown brick building on your right.

The Thames River Bus runs from Embankment to Woolwich Arsenal with stops on both sides of the river. The nearest stop to Limehouse is Canary Wharf, which is about 10 minutes walk from CA House. The service runs every 20 - 30 minutes most days of the year. If required walking directions from Canary Wharf Pier to Northey Street can be found on the CA website

By Road

Brief instructions : When approaching on the A13 (travelling East from London or West to London) turn down Branch Road, by Limehouse DLR station.  Get into the left lane, and carry straight on, not down the Rotherhithe Tunnel approach road.  Turn left at the bottom in to Horseferry Road and then left on to Narrow Street.  Cross the bridge.  Northey Street is the first left after the bridge. Please note that satnavs will take you to a location 100 yards further along Northey Street.


Parking: Limited parking is available for members on business at CA House and those attending functions.(Usually plenty of space on Sundays). At weekends and evenings there is also free parking in local streets.

Central London Congestion Charge: The standard daily central London Congestion does not apply on Sundays.

Taxi:  London Taxicabs (Black Cabs)  - ask for Limehouse Basin, Northey Street, off Narrow Street.

By Sea:  From the Medway/Southend area, the passage takes about 5 to 6 hrs. It is essential for most sailing boats to take the tide. Entry to Limehouse Basin is via a bridge and lock.  Accessible HW +/– 3 hrs. The max. draught permissible in the Basin is 2.5m. Call LIMEHOUSE MARINA on VHF Ch 80. Once inside the lock the marina (and marina office) are immediately to port and CA House immediately to starboard. Berths and the Lock can be pre-booked with as much notice as possible, but at least 48 hours on 07766 774726.
