Hire a canoe on the River Severn and enjoy a picnic or pub lunch along the way...
Updated: Jun 17, 2021
Hiring a canoe on the River Severn is a wonderful way to enjoy a day out with friends and family in the great outdoors. If you're looking for a leisurely paddle ranging from 4-6 hours (with lunch along the way), start your canoe trip in Bridgnorth and canoe down to Arley, Shropshire (around 4 hours with a lunch stop) or Bewdley, Worcestershire, which takes around 6 hours, with a lunch stop.
Relax and enjoy a picnic on the banks of the River Severn...
There are some lovely picnic spots along the way and we provide a barrel in your canoe to store your food & drink. There's nothing quite as relaxing as pulling up on a little secluded beach area on the side of the river, getting the picnic blanket out and tucking into some much deserved picnic treats! We love a good picnic, yum, yum!
Or you can enjoy a pub lunch during your canoe trip...
Another favourite way to enjoy lunch on our River Severn canoe trips is to stop at a pub along the way.
When canoeing from Bridgnorth to Arley, a good half way point is either the River & Rail pub in Hampton Loade or The Unicorn, Hampton Loade. It normally takes around 2 hours to paddle from Bridgnorth to either of these pubs, making them both ideal for a lunch stop en route to Arley. The River & Rail is a favourite place to end a trip when doing the Bridgnorth to Hampton Loade canoe trip (which takes around 2 hours).
If you're canoeing to Bewdley, you may wish to paddle down river a bit further before stopping for lunch in which case you could stop in Arley and enjoy lunch at the lovely Arley Tearoom (which has outdoor seating and riverside views) or The Harbour. which has a large beer garden. We recommend calling all of these eateries & booking in advance to ensure you can get a table.
