After staying in Ironbridge for a 3 day mini holiday we decided to call into Shrewsbury, hopefully to do some sightseeing. The weather was atrocious so we decided to take a boat trip. The driver of the Sabrina was a very good commentator and very friendly and gave the information about Shrewsbury in a very good and light-hearted way making... More

A very nice time out and it gave a different perseptive of the surrounding area. It is a shame that due to the low English Bridge and the weir the boat does not travel that far. The kids loved waving at the many visitors to the Quarry.

A very pleasant way to while away an hour on the river Severn. The boat was comfortable, the staff friendly and knowledgeable and the bar very reasonably priced. The best thing about the boat trips are you get to see the sights from a different perspective and this was no exception. All in all cannot be faulted, One tip though,... More

Sabrina cruise provides a different view of Shrewsbury from the water you pass river side mansions facing the river and not so grand row houses backing on terraced gardens. Other points of interest are the Welsh and English bridges and historical churches. Throughout there's a chatty commentary directing passengers to the various sights and includes a running history of Shrewsbury's... More

Enjoyed the boat trip with the exception of so called "light refreshments" which consisted of a hot drink and one biscuit! Slightly "bigged up"!

Shropshire is the most land locked county but the River Seven virtually surrounds Shrewsbury which is compensation. We had an enjoyable trip on Sabrina with a party booking last September which was nice but once it got dark there was very little to see so this is a daytime trip only in future. The guide and owner knows this part... More

This is a picturesque boat trip on the River Severn with an informative commentary. Fractionally over priced for 45 minutes.
