Canoeing is an idyllic way to explore our local area from the water. We are based at two of the county’s most beautiful locations, offering safe easy accessibility to paddling and wonderful experiences for all.
Shrewsbury Quarry Park
Take a step out of the town with us, onto a boat and become completely immersed in the the natural beauty of the River Severn and its wildlife. The river naturally loops around the town, forming part of its ancient defences, and from canoe you are able to view our historic town from a unique river level perspective. From our main base at The Quarry Park, Shrewsbury – we offer you one hour and half day canoe hire.
The Quarry Park is within easy walking distance of Shrewsbury Town Centre, car parks and transport links and has a large children’s play area, splash park, picnicing areas, The world famous Dingle Water Garden and is close by to several riverside pubs and restaurants. It’s a fantastic place to base your family outing, and visit to Shrewsbury as you’ll have plenty of time to explore before & after your hire.
We are also very excited to offer exclusive one hour canoe hire on The River Tern at Attingham Park during the summer months. Canoeing here is an unique experience at this renowned National Trust property. A very special stretch of river that was originally used by the land owners to entertain their guests, and so you’ll get a view of the park possible in no other way. Perfect for beginners you’ll be treated to some spectacular views as you flow through the Attingham Park Estate and who knows which of the resident wildlife you’ll spot on the way as otters, kingfishers, herons, dragonflies and swans are often seen.
A small additional entry cost is payable for non National Trust members, but this gives you access to the whole Estate and makes for a great day out for all the family, NT members enter free.
