Shropshire Raft Tours

Shropshire Raft Tours welcomes you to our scenic river boat trips, canoe/kayak hire, mini raft hire and mega stand up paddle board hire along the beautiful River Severn located in Ironbridge, Shropshire.

Great for those seeking a complete and fun-filled Ironbridge Gorge mini-adventure!

Our scenic raft trips are great for all the family with any age of children. Our 25 foot orange rafts are the largest in the UK and allow you to sit back and relax whilst our trained guides do all the work. Historic commentary is provided along the way as you float down river taking in the beautiful scenery and see the great iron bridge from a totally different perspective as you pass underneath. Look out for the wildlife along the way too, including swans, wagtails, otters and even kingfishers. Due to current Covid-19 conditions and social distancing customers in each household/bubble will sit in a separate compartment of the raft.

Our 60 minute trips on the river run each day at 12pm and 2pm. At the end of the trip you depart the raft in Jackfield and are free to explore the area. You can stop by the Black Swan Pub overlooking Jackfield Rapids, enjoy a drink at the Half Moon Pub sitting by the river, visit the Jackfield Tile Museum or stroll down to the Maws Craft Centre where there are lots of things to see and do. You can also walk the 1.2 miles back into Ironbridge, stopping at Ye Old Robin Hood pub, the Bedlam Furnace and of course the great iron bridge itself. Ironbridge has lots of small independent shops to visit and many pubs and cafes where you can enjoy a bite to eat.

Group discounts are available by calling us direct, with early bookings recommended.

For those wanting a mini adventure paddling under their own steam, we have canoe and kayak hire available for 1 hour, 2 hour and full day from Atcham to Ironbridge. Our mini-rafts and mega stand up paddle boards are also available for hire on a 7.5 mile route and are great for family reunions, corporate, stag and hen groups with our mini-rafts being extremely popular with families. We also have a one hour little rapid run in our mini-rafts which takes you under the iron bridge and through a short rapid before finishing at the Half Moon Pub.

Come join us as one of your things to do in Ironbridge.
