Shrewsbury Canoe Hire

By Porthill Bridge
Quarry Park


If you’re visiting Shrewsbury, experience paddling a canoe on our wonderful river. Canoeing is an accessible fun activity for all, getting you outside and closer to nature.

Turn up and hire a canoe from Shrewsbury Canoe Hire in The Quarry Park, and explore for yourselves the beauty of the River Severn in and around historic Shrewsbury. Canoes take a minimum of 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 Port Hill Bridge from Easter to the end of September 11am-5pm, often extending into the evening on fine days. All safety equipment is included. Larger groups would be wise to book in advance.

Fancy a longer trip? The Town or Country half day hire will get you further up the Severn into the wonderful countryside, where Shrewsbury Canoe Hire can also provide you with a picnic lunch, or experience the Shrewsbury town river loop that helped create the town you see today. The full day canoe hire begins at Montford Bridge and takes in the incredible natural scenery of the 12 miles of river snaking towards Shrewsbury. Shrewsbury Canoe Hire offer group paddles for your birthday’s or celebrations such as hen and stag do’s.
