Shropshire Raft Tours

Shropshire Raft Tours welcomes you to our canoe and kayak hire, mini-raft hire and mega stand up paddle board hire all along the beautiful River Severn.

Your 7 mile trip starts in Coalport and finishes in Bridgnorth.  We provide all the equipment including free minibus transport. We allow up to 4 hours to paddle the route which gives you time to enjoy the beautiful Shropshire countryside and enjoy a picnic break as you float along.

For our 10am and 11am trips, after parking your car in Severn Park, Bridgnorth our free minibus shuttle will transport you up river to the start point in Coalport.

In addition to enjoying a river trip you can also enjoy a breakfast at The Brewery Inn in Coalport beforehand on our first trip of the day. After parking your vehicle in Coalport, your table will be waiting for you at The Brewery Inn where you can spend an hour enjoying your freshly cooked breakfast before meeting just a minutes walk away for your river trip. (Please note that the cost of breakfast is not included in the hire and you will pay this to The Brewery Inn on the day. Pre-ordering of food is not required however we will reserve a table for you ). Dogs are welcome however you will need to sit outside on the terrace overlooking the river.

After paddling down river your trip finishes in Severn Park, Bridgnorth where your vehicle is parked. There are lots of cafes, pubs and shops in the historic market town of Bridgnorth to enjoy or you can sit and relax in Severn Park by the river.

For our breakfast club customers we will transport you back from Bridgnorth to your vehicle in Coalport at the end of your trip.

You can choose from a double or single sit-on-top kayak or a 2/3 seater canoe.  Our mini-rafts are especially popular with families with children who prefer to all be in the same boat, and can fit between 2 and 5 people (minimum of 2 adults per raft).  If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous then have a go on our mega stand up paddleboard which holds between 5-8 people.

We welcome children from the age of 4 and over on our canoes, kayaks and mini-rafts and children over the age of 10 on our mega stand up paddleboard.

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
