My partner Claire and I enjoyed a beautifully relaxing trip on Sabrina on an overcast and somewhat dank day, but it didn't spoil our enjoyment of a fabulous trip Starting at the Welsh Bridge, opposite The Armoury pub, we cruised around the "horseshoe" arc of the Severn skirting the town centre. We passed by The Boat House pub, The Quarry,... More

A leisurely boat trip on the river Severn with commentary. A good way to see a different view of Shrewsbury. Covered boat with optional (extra) liquid refreshments. Regular trips throughout the day.

I'm a bit of a die hard romantic so give me a chilly almost wintery day and a chance to put on my winter boots and silly bobble hat and skip through the fallen leaves on the way to the Sabrina boat tour and it's my idea of heaven. Humorous, relaxing tour led by the friendly captain gave a lovely... More

We went on a Sabrina trip on a Saturday morning. Refreshments were served on the boat and a commentary was given on the return part of the trip to explain the history and point out artefacts of note. The boat is covered so it can be used on a rainy day. The staff were very helpful and I would recommend... More

Myself and some friends attended one of the special 90s night experiences. It was so much fun! A really great experience, getting to share nostalgia with friends, have a good old dance and experience Shrewsbury from a new angle. All of the staff were lovely too. I'd love to book again privately for a birthday or some other occasion!

This is a very reasonably priced boat tour which gives a good overview of Shrewsbury. The boat was clean and you can buy a hot drink or snack whilst on board from very friendly staff. On the return trip we were given some very interesting information about the surrounding areas from a very nice man. Definitely recommend this.

Enjoyed our unfussed and unhurried little trip down to English Bridge and back. The views are lovely and the boat neat and tidy with a friendly crew. I liked the quiet cruise on the way down followed by the commentary on the way back. Fair value for money.

Booked the Sabrina boat trip to entertain visitors from America and France. They loved it. The journey is only relatively short - 45 minutes round trip - but the skipper on board gives out a lot of very interesting historical information along the way. We were lucky with the weather in that it was a lovely sunny day at the... More
