Fantastic boat trip, we did the Ghost Tour one a Monday evening and were given a guided tour up and down the river which lasted around 45 minutes, great price too! Would definitely do it again and would highly recommend!

A dull overcast day but brightened up by a great trip on The Sabrina - we've lived in Shrewsbury for 25 plus years but we learned some new facts presented by a witty and interesting captain.

It's only 45 minutes to go from Welsh Bridge to English Bridge and back on this Severn trip, but the amusing, informative commentary on the return is worth admission alone. That and the good choice of all drinks, the relaxing views, and the calmness, all made for an enjoyable and entertaining trip.

Over the years we have had a number of trips on the Sabrina, in the past they were really not that interesting. However, we believe Sabrina is under new ownership or management, not actually that sure, but the "new" skipper gave us a really fantastic potted history of Shrewsbury and even though l have lived nearby for 20 years l...

This is a lovely activity for the afternoon. I went with my mom and daughter 16months who loved looking at the ducks and swans and waving at passers by. 45mins was plenty of time to sit back and relax with a drink (or I had an ice lolly). The captain was very informative. Lovely views on a beautiful day :)

This was a short trip up the river on a lovely boat that served drinks. The 'captain' gave an informative narrative on the trip and was quite comical at times. A good trip for anyone wanting to look at Shrewsbury from the river.

The boat trip we enjoyed this week was so relaxing with a very good commentary by the Captain. 45 minutes of pure delight, with a good cup of tea and biscuits and the most friendly staff to serve us. We were lucky to have a gloriously sunny day, and it is lovely when the people on the river bank give... More

A fabulous 45 minute boat tour with very good commentary. Very relaxing and cheery staff who were happy to serve! Two hour parking for a small fee close-by. Just a word of caution - the leaflet we had about the tour only gave the post code of the office, so don't follow that, make sure you have the code for... More
