We went with a group of friends on this short river trip. About 30 of us went meeting on the quayside. We were met by a very personable young man. We sat at tables of four with tea and coffee served when under way. The captain gave a very knowledgable talk on the history of Shrewsbury and pointed out places... More

A lovely way to spend 45 mins of a summer afternoon floating gently down the Severn / Sabrina River in Shrewsbury with a glass of wine or pot of tea. Interesting but not obtrusive commentary of the historic buildings passed on the way back. Good value for £s.

My stepdaughter got married last month and she arranged for her guests to be transported to the reception on the Sabrina! Great running commentary and excellent on board bar service! The whole experience is highly recommended!

We were visiting Shrewsbury as friends originate from there and we were doing all the touristy things, including the "River Cruise" A very nice surprise too with lots of interesting facts and information about the town, great service and a massive pot of tea to boot! Worth the money on a pleasant day.

Sunday afternoon... sun out... river calm... and a Captain with local knowledge. A very pleasant 40 min's trip.

My wife and I often visit Shropshire and I lived in Shrewsbury many years ago. We met up with friends from LA and decided to take a river trip to show off the Shrewsbury river stretch to our USA friends. The boat and staff were first class and the commentator by them was one that we felt proud of what... More

We enjoyed a trip on the Sabrina on Saturday afternoon with our friends. We had a lovely relaxing time, the Captain and staff were friendly and informative. Drinks are available if required. The trip lasts approximately 45 minutes, but well worth it, and good value for money.

The captain, friendly and cheerful explained the route and he gave a good and informative commentary on the route back not just names and dates but some interesting facts,... More
