Prices from  

£34 per person

This cherry-picked National Trust site is home to the second oldest lock on the River Thames! Draped in history and stunning scenery, this is the perfect treasure trove to come canoeing, whether you’re bringing your little munchkins or relishing your retirement. This relaxed river is ideal for the whole gang regardless of your experience – you can even bring your pet pooch along for the adventure!

Spoilt with riverbanks overflowing in history, step back in time as you spot genuine artefacts used to help defend Britain in World War II, including the river itself which would have stopped tanks in their tracks!

With a boatload of local wildlife on offer, fill your boots with some bird, insect or fish spotting on your journey! There’s so much life making a home on this river, you’ll be wanting to join us for a paddle all year round!

DORSET

Christchurch

Meander the gentle River Stour in Christchurch, just 15 minutes from Bournemouth. Launching from our private slipway at Tuckton Bridge, follow the winding river bends, keeping your eyes peeled for an abundance of wildlife along the way, including kingfishers, egrets and buzzards.

HAMPSHIRE

The New Forest

Marvel at the awe-worthy landscapes of The New Forest from river to land, a location that is never short of wildlife and natural history. This national park seems to be home to more four-legged friends than two, and a trip on their rivers will feel like a world away from the everyday.
