A lovely trip on the River Severn from Welsh bridge to English bridge and back. I managed to learn several new things about Shrewsbury.

I live in Shrewsbury and went on the Sabrina Cruise for the first time yesterday evening.I fully appreciate its attraction to tourists, I would recommend it to everyone visiting the town and residents who would like to see Shrewsbury from a different perspective. My disappointment was the quality of the ghost cruise. I've since found out that the cost of... More

Nice relaxing cruise on the Severn, we purchase our tickets from the tourist information centre in Shrewsbury and cost £6.75 per adult from there. The information from the captain of the boat was very interesting and drinks are served onboard for a reasonable price. We were very fortunate to be there when the flower show was on with lovely weather... More

A nice forty minute ride around the Severn between Welsh and English bridges covering most of the town from the viewpoint of the river. At 7.50 per adult, you can't really go wrong. They serve drinks during the day, and have various other special cruises at other times (like their ghost cruise). Good commentary from the captain will entertain you... More

A good way to see some of Shrewsbury and gain some local knowledge from the commentary. Very relaxing and quiet. A good tip is to buy tickets at the tourist information in the town to save some money. Drinks and snacks are served on board but are quite expensive. It takes about an hour in total with about 45 minutes... More

Myself personally thought it a little expensive for just 40mins on the river, 1 adult is £11.50 and children £3.50. Overall though the crew are well attentive, the captain is well informative with lots of knowledge about Shrewsbury & myself as a nosey person just loved looking at the fabulous houses, park, churches & pubs along the riverside.

Thank you so much for your positive review, its great to know you had a good time on board Sabrina. We did notice that you mentioned the price for an adult as £11.50, it is actually £7.50, and with boat tours in Chester and York more expensive we hope we offer value for money locally. Please note you can also... More
