The Main Event

This charming 45-minute river tour in Shropshire offers stunning views along the River Severn, then when you’re finished you get to enjoy a lovey afternoon tea!

Take a ride on a 60-person, three-deck, modern passenger ship on the River Severn close to Shrewsbury with retractable sides and a roof. On your travels, take in attractions like the Welsh Bridge, Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury Castle, and St. Chad's Church.

Suitable for both adults and kids, there are several opportunities to capture beautiful pictures and listen to the onboard commentary from a qualified local guide emphasising places of interest and local monuments.

Once the tour is complete, you take a short uphill walk 10 minutes into Shrewsbury for a traditional afternoon tea!

All drinks on board the boat must be purchased yourself.

Who Can Go

  • Purchasing a ticket does not guarantee a seat on the top deck, however, seats will be issued in order of booking.
