Family Friendly  Paddling Experience 

Discover the joy of kayaking or paddleboarding on the stunning Herefordshire and Gloucester Canal. 

Learn how to move your boat or board and build your confidence on the water in a safe environment.  This section of water is the start of the Herefordshire and Gloucester Canal which is being refurbished back into action. 

This site is perfectly located next to the recently renovated Lock Keepers Inn which is under new management. It is only 5 minutes drive from the city centre and has free parking!

This site is home to all our family sessions offering a paddling experience in a safe and clean environment with plenty of wildlife to be spotted.

No previous paddling experience is necessary. You will be looked after by one of our fantastic Discover Paddling Team Instructors, British Canoeing qualified, highly experienced, and passionate about paddlesport.

At the end of your session you will be sent a Discover Paddling Participation Certificate to print at home.

An responsible adult (18+) must accompany every booking on the water.

Sessions are available at this location every Saturday for some weekend fun!
