We were in Shrewsbury for just two nights and decided on the second day to try this river trip on Sabrina. A lovely slow and comfortable trip down the river and with a very clear commentary on the way back to the moorings. A great trip and well worth the time and money. If you book before the trip is due to leave you get asked aboard before those folks that queued. It was a quiet day for our trip but imagine that in the height of summer it would be very busy.

My wife absolutely hates being on the water but we decided to try a little river boat ride on the Sabrina. We loved it, a gentle cruise down , young girl serving drinks was lovely, friendly. The Captain of the boat gave us a running commentary on our return regarding the local history which was very informative. Well worth the few pounds that we paid. My wife loved it. So we might have progressed.

Had a lovely 45 minute boat trip with commentary from the 'Captain' who was informative and engaging to listen to. We were also served drinks and snacks for an extra charge. The trip costs £8 per person and we called the number direct to book and were first in the queue. You can sit upstairs or downstairs and it is all undercover. It was interesting to listen to a bit of history and see the interesting views of the park, houses and longhorn cattle as well as Hercules statue and Welsh and English bridges.

What a great 45 minutes we spent on the Sabrina sailing along the Severn river through Shrewsbury town centre with Rod the captain and the lovely Isla who sorted out the tickets and provided refreshments.

Really informative commentary from Rod and I learned a lot about the town just from this brief trip.

Good value for money and all done with great service from Rod and Isla.

Commentary on the way back was informative. After a long car journey it was nice to relax on the boat,sipping a drink and watching the world to by.
