Really the only thing this has going for it, is that it's on the river. The river really is lovely, but sadly, the service on this boat trip was appalling. You're supposed to be offered something to drink as soon as you sit down, and...More

The skipper and crew of the Sabrina make this 45 minute trip well worth trying. The boat is comfortable and the weather exceptional. The trip goes around the loop of the River and the skipper gives all a commentary about the bridges, buildings and history...More

Better than expected, pleasant way to spend 45 minutes. Quite good value with family tickets. The scenery was lovely and the commentary very informative and the guy was amusing. Would recommend booking at the weekend. We got discount by booking at campsite.

This boat ride through the town covers a lot of ground both in distance and history. I always take visitors on it. The trip covers the whole of “The Loop” of the River Severn in which the town centre lies. Excellent commentary, drinks and views.

Three quarters of an hour of peace and tranquility on a boat with tea and biscuits. Plus on the return journey the history of the area is conveyed to you by the Captain. Most enjoyable.

It was a very hot day when we took a trip but the boat does have a “ roof” over the top deck which has open sides from which to view the area. The commentary was interesting and informative as we cruised past assorted churches...More

Adults are £8, concessions are £6.50. Worth the money and if you buy from the information centre there is a 10% discount.

To the left of where the boat docks, with the river on your right, there is metered parking towards the park. Seemed to be a lot of spaces available whenever we walked past.
