Canoe & Kayak Hire
Planning & Resources
We hire canoes and kayaks for
use on the River Severn.
Why not organise your own trip on the River?
The Severn is Britainís longest
river covering around 220 miles from its source high in the Cambrian Mountains
to eventually emptying into the sea in the Bristol Channel.
With around 130 miles of almost
hazard free river the Severn is ideal for journeying and makes a trip of several
days combined with camping, or where possible, bed and breakfast. Of course you
donít have to do a long journey to enjoy the Severn, you can hire a kayak or
canoe for a few hours, here are a few suggestions.
Half day 3-6+
favourite is to start at Frankwell Canoe Ramp, Shrewsbury. Paddle up the river out
of the town
for a picnic before paddling back. Alternatively paddle around the infamous
Severn loop around Shrewsbury and return.
Full day 12 or 14 miles.
Montford Bridge to Frankwell Canoe Ramp, or continue to Shrewsbury Weir, peace and tranquillity & stunning scenery,
stop along the way for a picnic lunch.
2/3 days from 36 miles
Start your journey upstream of Shrewsbury, enjoy the twists & turns of the upper reaches, paddling
through the continuously changing scenery. Spend the night camping at a choice
of campsites along the way.
