Canoe safari

Grab a paddle and spot wildlife from the water on our fun canoe safari trail. Cruise down our kilometre long trail in a canoe which can take up to three people.

Sit back and relax as you look out for wildlife along the way such as water voles, dragon flies, warblers and ducks.

Canoe Safari is open from 4 April to October (weather dependent on weekends in October and October half term).

Canoes are priced at £7 per boat.

Youngest child on canoes for this year will be 3 years old but this is subject to conditions.

Each canoe hired must be accompanied by at least 1 adult (18+).


Test your skills to the limit as you try to paddle in a coracle. The ancient one-man boats are an important part of the heritage of the River Severn. The lightweight circular boats are notoriously unstable so can leave you in a bit of a spin!

Coracles are priced at £7 per boat.

All coracle hirers must be over 18 years of age.

The Canoe/Coracle safari trail is closed during very cold, wet or windy weather.

Open from 4 April to October, 11am to 4pm daily – open from 11am and the last canoe hire is at 4pm allowing the hirer the allotted 1hr on the water with all Canoes/Coracles off the water by 5pm.

PLEASE NOTE: Payment is by cash only at canoes. You can also pay with card at the admissions desk and show your receipt to our Canoe Safari Warden - note that safaris are weather dependent so cannot be booked in advance - only on the day of your visit. Canoes are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
