Special Events and Trips

Throughout the year we offer a variety of special events, trips and BBQs. We detail these below, for more information please feel free to get in contact.
Welcome to our High water trips! We usually run 25ft scenic boat trips for all ages throughout the season but sometimes come up against higher water that prevents us from motoring the boats upstream. Our policy in the past is to close until the river behaves. Now we can continue to run but this time with our customers wearing a helmet and some of your party paddling in our 10ft mini-rafts. That way we do not have the disappointment of cancelling the trip the day before and people get to access the river with a capable guide paddling downstream. The trip runs on the same stretch of river but we steer the extra course through Jackfield rapids and then finish round the corner at the Half Moon Pub.
River Raft Tours

This runs for the same length of time with 1 hour on the water. The trip has a minimum age of 4 years due to us running a very easy class 2 rapid at Jackfield. At the end of the trip we shuttle you back up to where you are parked at the Wharfage car park.

Call us at (01952) 427 150. Email us shropshirerafttours@icloud.com.

NOTE: Group trip dates are available anytime of the season on request but a minimum of 10 seats will need to be booked for a trip to go ahead. When the river is low enough for our regular 25ft scenic float tours, we run these mini-raft trips through Jackfield rapids early evening.

Trips can be organised on request for groups of up to 16. Please give as much notice as possible before requested trip date.

Welcome to our full day trips! We run scenic boat trips for ages 12 and above from Ironbridge to Bridgnorth throughout the season. Our trips start at 9.30am in Ironbridge floating through the birthplace of the industrial revolution and travel down the river Severn enjoying picturesque Shropshire with scenic countryside the whole way to Bridgnorth. At the end of out trips we enjoy a BBQ in Severn park, Bridgnorth with picnic tables and blankets. We cater for vegetarians or any other dietary requirement on request. Group discounts are available for full boats of 16 people.
River Raft Tours

This is full day trip where you will be on the water between 4-5 hours. There are no stops along the way with toilet facilities provided before we set off and where we finish in Bridgnorth. The trip has a minimum age of 12 years due to us running a very easy class 2 rapid at Jackfield. We find children aged under 12 may lack patience to be on a boat for so long so try to avoid it for other passengers enjoyment.

The trip ventures through Ironbridge with all the character of this unique gorge and then onto the solace of Shropshire’s rural areas where you can sit back and relax before arriving in Bridgnorth. Passengers are welcome to experience rowing the largest rafts in the U.K but in no way is it compulsory. We provide drinks along the way plus a choice of veggie or angus beef burgers at the end of the trip together with a selection of salad, side dishes and desserts plus hot and cold drinks in Severn Park, Bridgnorth. At the end of the day we will shuttle you back to Ironbridge by minibus.
