    Whether you want to stop at The White Swan in Twickenham for food or intend to have a relaxed picnic on the riverside, this 3 hour Self Guided SUP Adventure is for you!

    Don’t squander your summer, hit the Thames on a stand up paddleboarding adventure that will take you along a scenic stretch of the river on the outskirts of London.

    Glide towards Twickenham and Teddington and let yourself be enveloped by nature, enjoy conversation with like-minded friends and moor up for a BYO pint and some food at the riverside or stop at The White Swan in Twickenham for a bite to eat

    Suitable for all abilities, paddlers will enjoy this easy-going stand up paddleboarding adventure.

    Pack a picnic, bring a towel, enjoy some fun in outdoors and make it an adventure to remember!

    Please note that all paddlers under 18 years of age must be accompanied on the water with a parent or guardian.


    Anyone taking to the River on a Self Guided SUP Adventure must:

    1. be able to swim 50 metres..
    2. be able to paddle independently without assistance.
    3. be accompanied at all times when on the water by an adult if under 18 years.*
    4. wear their buoyancy aid at all times whilst on the water.

    You will start the session paddling on your knees before transitioning to standing, therefore, a degree of flexibility is needed to do this.

    *The adult to child ratio on the water is 1 adult to 2 children.

    What to bring

    You are going to be paddling beautifully stable stand up paddleboards but, due to the nature of the activity, there is a chance that you may get wet.

    As part of your micro-adventure, you’ll receive a (re)introduction to paddling, along with some guidance on where to paddle, and we’ll provide you with a dry bag that you can use to pack a towel, spare clothes, phone and wallet to take with you.

    The following is a suggestion, but it is your adventure, so you are welcome to reject this!!

    Having explored our picturesque section of the River Thames, just 20 minutes from Central London, you can land at the slipway of the beautiful and historic White Swan pub for a well deserved lunch and chat with friends and family. The pub will take bookings for tables inside the pub, unless it is a rugby or event day, and, if starting at 11:30am, we’d recommend booking for 1:15pm and ordering food on arrival. Tables in the garden are available on a first come, first serve basis overlooking the water and the infamous Eel Pie Island.

    Suitably fed and watered, you will return to your boats or boards for a post lunch paddle back to River Lane, where you’ll hand back your dry bag, buoyancy aids, paddles and craft, before heading off to explore Richmond Park (if you’ve got more energy to expend), or perhaps simply head back to your hotel to freshen up before getting married… yes, you read that correctly - it’s happened a few times now!!
