About

Shropshire Raft Tours welcomes you to our canoe and kayak hire, mini-raft hire and mega SUP hire all along the beautiful River Severn.

Your 7 mile trip starts in Coalport.  We provide all the equipment including free minibus transport. We allow up to 4 hours to paddle the route which gives you time to enjoy the beautiful Shropshire countryside and enjoy a picnic break as you float along.

For our 10am and 11am trips, after parking your car in Severn Park, Bridgnorth our free minibus shuttle will transport you up river to the start point in Coalport.

In addition to enjoying a river trip you can also enjoy a breakfast at The Brewery Inn in Coalport beforehand on our first trip of the day. After parking your vehicle in Coalport, your table will be waiting for you at The Brewery Inn where you can spend an hour enjoying your freshly cooked breakfast. (Please note that the cost of breakfast is not included in the hire and you will pay this to The Brewery Inn on the day. Pre-ordering of food is not required however we will reserve a table for you ). Dogs are welcome however you will need to sit outside on the terrace overlooking the river.

After paddling down river your trip finishes in Severn Park, Bridgnorth where your vehicle is parked. There are lots of cafes, pubs and shops in the historic market town of Bridgnorth to enjoy or you can sit and relax in Severn Park by the river.

For our breakfast club customers we will transport you back from Bridgnorth to your vehicle in Coalport at the end of your trip.

You can choose from a double or single sit-on-top kayak or a 2/3 seater canoe.  Our mini-rafts are especially popular with families with children who prefer to all be in the same boat, and can fit between 2 and 5 people (minimum of 2 adults per raft).  If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous then have a go on our mega stand up paddleboard which holds between 5-8 people.

We welcome children from the age of 4 and over.

Shropshire Raft Tours are the #1 traveller ranked activity on TripAdvisor for Things to do in Ironbridge so come and join us for a great day out!
