Description: The Leam Boat Centre is based in beautiful Jephson Gardens along the river...
The Leam Boat Centre is based in beautiful Jephson Gardens along the river in Leamington Town Centre. The park's old Victorian boathouse was renovated thirteen years ago as part of the Millennium Project and it is now a thriving centre of activity. It's a lovely place to come for a day out as a family; row boats, motor boats and pedalos can be hired as and when you arrive and floating along the river for a carefree, sunlit hour is a wonderful experience. For more adventurous visitors, canoes and kayaks are also available for hire. The Leam Boat Centre also gives lessons in canoeing and kayaking and can cater to all levels of experience, from taster sessions for beginners through to training courses for instructors. Paddle Power kayak courses are held throughout the holidays for children to get their first taste of the sport. It might turn into a lifelong passion!

We recently visited with 25 Cub Scouts and had a brilliant evening dragon boat racing in Warwick. Our instructors Yannig and Matt were brilliant with the children and we all had a lot of fun. We'd definitely recommend dragon boating to any youth groups looking for a fun and good value activity that teaches the children a lot about teamwork.... More

I rather enjoyed the afternoon Kayaking down the River Leam to Warwick castle on the river Avon with my partner. We wanted something fun to do and thought we would give kayak rentals a go. It was very easy to book over the phone, the staff were friendly, informative and they gave some good tips on where to visit. If... More

I attended the 3* Kayaking course in Pembrokeshire last weekend. It was an informative and exhilarating experience which on day 2 had our group paddling to the spectacular Skomer Island. Matt, the guide, was professional and highly knowledgeable about the local tides and this enabled the entire group to paddle safely and confidently through some challenging conditions. It was a...

We stumbled on Leam Boat Hire whilst exploring the beautiful town of Leamington Spa, and I'm so glad we did! We (family of 2 adults & 2 teens) chose a electric motor boat which was virtually silent, and it was fantastic to glide along the most peaceful and tranquil river I have ever visited. We even saw a young deer... More

We hadn't intended going on a boat trip but my eight year old spotted the advertising. When I enquired the Lady in charge was extremely friendly and helpful and quoted £15 for thirty minutes on the river in a motor boat (with a super quiet electric engine) for three adults and one child. The rest of the team were also... More

I visited this attraction on Saturday just gone, and both myself and a friend had a very good experience both on the water, and with the staff on site. They were very friendly, as were the people we encountered on the water, it poses nice easy stretches for amateurs, such as myself, as well as some small challenges to navigate... More

Took a 13 and 11 year old boy out for an hour and they loved it!! Myself and my husband had a canoe. It was easier than I thought and we have planned to go back with a picnic and do 2 hours!! Very friendly staff, knowledgeable and helpful.
