About Us

Are you ready to get out on the water? Pub and Paddle is a fun an unusual canoe hire experience in Norwich. We create that back to nature feeling right here in the city centre. Whether you’re an expert canoeist or have never paddled a canoe before, Pub and Paddle canoe trips are great for everyone

All of our canoe rentals begin in the centre of Norwich at The Red Lion Pub on Bishop’s Bridge, a part of the river where motorboats are not allowed. You can take your time learning how to paddle and get the canoe moving. This will not take you long – our beautiful wooden canoes easily glide across the water and are very stable!

Even those of you who have grown up in Norwich will be amazed at the unique feeling you get from paddling through our fine city. Being on the water is a great way to see Norwich!

It is only a short distance before the river opens up to some beautiful countryside where you can take a well-earned rest in a choice of riverside pubs.

We offer a number of routes depending on where you want to finish your trip and how much time you’d like to spend on the water. And of course we have included the pub stops as well! Please visit the Routes page for more information.
