Shrewsbury Canoe & eBike Hire

6 Claremont Hill


Shrewsbury Canoe Hire

Canoeing is an idyllic way to explore our local area from the water. We are based on one of Shrewsbury’s most beautiful locations, The River Severn, offering safe easy accessibility to paddling and wonderful experiences for all.

Turn up and hire a canoe at the riverside or pre-book and take a step out of the town with us and become completely immersed in the natural beauty of the Severn and its wildlife. The river naturally loops around the town, forming part of its ancient defences, and from canoe you are able to view our historic town from a unique river level perspective. From our main base in Frankwell, Shrewsbury – we offer you one hour and half-day canoe hire.

Canoes are study and wide-based & take 2 adults, plus 1-2 children from 3 years up, dependent on their size and environmental conditions. Shrewsbury Canoe Hire can be found next to Frankwell car park from Easter to the end of September 11am-5pm, often extending into the evening on fine days. All safety equipment is included. Larger groups we offer group paddles for your birthday’s or celebrations such as hen and stag do’s.

eBike Hire

Electric bikes make visiting Shrewsbury and the surrounding countryside literally a breeze. Recapture the freedom and excitement of cycling – without all the hard work. They are loads of fun, accessible for many people who may think cycling is now beyond them, and a really flexible and very green, clean way of getting to see so much more of this beautiful local area.

Local routes

We can recommend a variety of fascinating and beautiful local routes, helping you to discover Shrewsbury with its imposing castle and abundant medieval, Tudor and Georgian landmarks. The bikes will quickly take you out into the lush green local countryside, quiet country roads and gentle rolling hills (which the bikes honestly make easy work of). We can also recommend a lovely non-traffic route alongside the river and old canal towpaths, perfect for families and anyone a little nervous on a bike.

Our bikes are sturdy and robust, suitable for up to 125kg in weight. Half and full-day hire available. Hirers must be 14+ – all under 18’s must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Helmets and back panier provided with hire.

Hirers must provide photo ID and proof of address. Bikes are hired from our Booking Office at 6 Claremont Bank. Shrewsbury SY1 1RD – please note that we can also store your belongings securely whilst you are out on the eBike. For additional offers see our eBike website.
