What to Expect
After a quick safety briefing, you will set off on your raft tour, rowed by an experienced guide along the River Severn, visiting both historical and beautiful sights. Free photos will be emailed to you the same day.
After departing the raft in Jackfield you are then free to explore on foot. Enjoy a drink at a local pub or take a short stroll to the Maws Craft Centre or Jackfield Tile Museum. The walk back into Ironbridge takes approximately 15 minutes as you pass by the Robin Hood pub, Bedlam Furnace and of course the iron bridge itself. There are lots of pubs and cafes in Ironbridge to visit for a bite to eat and independent shops and retailers in both Ironbridge and Merrythought Village.
For the full day hire of canoes, kayaks, mini-rafts and mega SUP’s we meet at the kiosk and provide transport to the start point where you then paddle back to Ironbridge.
There are many opportunities for photos along the way, as well as a group shot taken by our photographer on our guided raft trips which is emailed to you at no extra cost as a momento of your day.
