Half day canoe hire

This section of the river is all about the peace and tranquility of paddling the beautiful River Severn. The route meanders between the Royal Hill Pub and Montford Bridge via a series of gentle faster flowing sections that are great fun and easily passable.

Along this route there are many islands and cool features such as The Nescliffe military training ground and the 224 year old Montford bridge designed by Thomas Telford.

Much of the river bank along this stretch is SSSI protected as it is full of rare and wonderful wildlife. Our customers report seeing kingfishers, swans, herons and even plentiful otter sightings!

Half day sessions are available in the morning, late morning (over lunch time for those wishing to have a picnic on route) and in the afternoon.

The recommended start times for this route run on the hour every hour from 9am  until 2 pm.

  • Choose the type of boat you would like to paddle.

  • Choose a day & start time (these can be flexible depending on availability day by day).

  • We have a small amount of paperwork for your group too fill in so arrive 15 minutes early.

  • We introduce you to the clean, modern and safe equipment you are hiring and how to use it.

  • We transport you to your chosen start point and meet you at the end to help you off the river.
