Happiness is...a day out canoeing on the River Severn

A great day out with kids in the West Midlands

You can't beat a day out in the great outdoors with the kids! Canoeing on the River Severn is a really wonderful way to escape the gadgets and gizmos of day to day life and get out and have some fun together.

This great day out with kids in the West Midlands is suitable for children age 7+ when accompanied by an adult and you'll receive full instruction and buoyancy aids before setting off on your canoe adventure down the River Severn.

This stretch of the River Severn is easy to paddle, with a few tame rapids along the way that make it fun and enjoyable without any worry. As long as you are confident in and around water then you'll be fine on this exciting canoe trip that takes you from Bridgnorth and down to Arley, taking about 4 hours with a picnic or pub stop along the way.

Canoe & steam train

How do you get back to the start point? On our Bridgnorth to Arley route you can hop on the train via the Severn Valley Railway (tickets are available on our website) and this is a great way to finish your day out on the water. Arley has a great pub and tearoom if you have to wait a little time for your train, enabling you to sit back and relax before heading back to your car.

This fun day out on the River Severn is popular with families and friends looking for a great time in the outdoors.

How much is it?

Canoeing from Bridgnorth to Arley costs £28 per adult and £14 per child plus train tickets if you wish to return by train. Other options include a bus or parking a car at each end.
