Routes and Booking

There are 3 different canoe routes available, depending on how long you and your group want to spend on the water. All of our trips start from the Red Lion pub next to historic Bishop Bridge, allowing you to paddle through Norwich and out into the countryside via a handful of idyllic riverside pubs.

One way trips. Routes 2 and 3 are both one-way trips. If you don't want to spend time paddling back the way you came, you can enjoy a one-way trip, finishing in the countryside and allowing you to paddle as many of our amazing waterways as possible... We will pick up the canoes whilst you enjoy a rest at your final stop. You will then make your own way back to Norwich which is only a short taxi drive away!

* Please note - pre-booking is required.

  •   Thanks, Nick for a great day out with my granddaughter yesterday. Loved getting back in a canoe after 55 years - it all came back very quickly! Your canoes are beautifully built and are great to handle. Thanks also for your flexibility on arrival times - much appreciated. Delighted the business is doing well and will certainly be back for more.

  •   Fab afternoon on the river in Norwich! I can highly reccommend this for business or pleasure. A great way to see the city. No previous canoeing experience required. Nick and Chantal provide everything you need for a very enjoyable experience on the water.

  •   Had an amazing time with Pub and Paddle in Norwich. We paddled to the lovely Thorpe St Andrew which was about 45-50 minutes, after a little lesson in how to canoe! They were super friendly and gave us great advice about what pubs to go to on the trip as well as once we were back in the city. Great fun, I would recommend this to anyone!

  •   Had a brilliant 4 hours on the canoes yesterday! Chantel and Nick were so helpful and quick at answering the questions I had before booking. On the day they couldn't have been more welcoming! The trip itself was so much fun and having never been on a canoe before we found it very easy! Will definitely be returning soon!

  •   Amazing day out. Would highly recommend as great value for money. We weren't made to feel as if we had a time limit, so could enjoy without worrying about time. Easy to get in and out of the canoe. The pubs are lovely and the view was amazing along the river. Nick was lovely and made us feel very welcome. Again would highly recommend!!!

  •   I can't recommend the picnic boat highly enough. We had such a giggle and saw the lovely sights of Norwich from a different perspective. The food was top notch and there was plenty of it. Fantastic afternoon and I can't wait to do it again soon.
