Shrewsbury Canoe Hire now offers canoe hire to the members and visitors of the National Trust with our Turn Up & Hire service on the River Tern at Attingham Park.
This is a great way to try canoeing for the first time and a unique chance to explore one of Shropshire’s hidden gems as you experience the Estate’s waterway as was originally intended for the landowners and their guests.
The hire period will be for one hour sessions at a cost of £25 per boat. This gives you ample time to explore the stunning natural environment of the gentle River Tern.
The self-guided trip takes the shape of 40 minutes of gentle paddling upstream, wowing the senses and taking in the natural beauty of the deer park and gardens on either side. Paddlers then turn at the historic suspension bridge, followed by an astonishing 20-minute return trip downstream, experiencing the timeless grand vista views of the Estate grounds, before returning to the jetty. It’s really a trip not to be missed.
You can pre-book available dates and time slots above or spontaneously hire on the day of visit through our turn up and hire service, similar to our operation in The Quarry Park. We are able to accommodate groups of all sizes, although we recommend that larger groups pre-book.
Operating between 10 am and 5 pm on those days, weather and river conditions permitting.
