The Gold Licence is for boaters who spend time on both Environment Agency and Canal & River Trust waterways.
If you buy a Gold Licence, you won't need to buy separate licences from these authorities.
A Gold Licence allows complete access to all Environment Agency and Canal & River Trust waterways, in all regions. A Gold Licence lasts for twelve months and is for powered craft only.
For more information and to apply for a Gold Licence, download the information pack below. You should apply through the Canal & River Trust for this: we do not issue Gold Licences.
Each year we offer a free 15-consecutive day registration to visit either our Anglian, Southern or Thames waterways, if you currently hold a full annual registration on another of our waterways. Simply complete and return the visitor/short-term registration form for the location you want to visit.
If you have any questions please contact us by phone on 03708 506 506 or by email at email@example.com
From January 2013, Gold Licence holders who wish to access the River Cam upstream of Bottisham Lock will need to register separately with the Conservators of the River Cam.
This is due to a change in the Interchange Agreement between the Environment Agency and Conservators.
Please visit the Conservators website for more information.
