Route 1

Our shortest trip takes you along the River Wensum past Quayside, Cow Tower, Norwich cathedral and the old Colman’s mustard factory. You will soon escape the city and reach some glorious countryside as well as Whitlingham Broad. As you approach the beautiful village of Thorpe St Andrew you will pass some amazing houses and find a choice of riverside pubs where you can stop for lunch or a drink. You can tie your canoes up at the village green or the pubs and leave them in the water while you take a well earned rest. After a relaxing and refreshing break, turn the canoes around and paddle back to Norwich.

Pub Stops:

  • The Rivergarden
  • Rush Cutter Arms
  • The Townhouse

Time: Return trip to Norwich, 4 hours. Roughly 2.5 hours canoeing plus 1.5 hours to stop in Thorpe St Andrew for a drink or lunch. It is advisable to pre-book lunch to ensure you have enough time - the pubs can get very busy on weekends and even on weekdays during summer.
Cost: £20/person
