Overview
More
The Leam Boat Centre is based in beautiful Jephson Gardens along the river in Leamington Town Centre. The park's old Victorian boathouse was renovated thirteen years ago as part of the Millennium Project and it is now a thriving centre of activity. It's a lovely place to come for a day out as a family; row boats, motor boats and pedalos can be hired as and when you arrive and floating along the river for a carefree, sunlit hour is a wonderful experience. For more adventurous visitors, canoes and kayaks are also available for hire. The Leam Boat Centre also gives lessons in canoeing and kayaking and can cater to all levels of experience, from taster sessions for beginners through to training courses for instructors. Paddle Power kayak courses are held throughout the holidays for children to get their first taste of the sport. It might turn into a lifelong passion!

My daughter and her friend spent 3 days on the Paddle power course. It was great, they loved it. Even though the weather was cold and rainy, no complaints for the kids. They really enjoyed it. Fully recommended. Will be back for sure.

Hired a canoe yesterday out with our very disabled son. The guys were great, no fuss. Assessed our needs and sorted it out. Decent quality of kit and all appropriate. Relaxed all the way. Assistance dog friendly, help available but at your request.
