Very pleasant trip with refreshments on board. The captain gave a full, informative and well presented, history of the area of Shrewsbury. He talked to the passengers from start to finish in a friendly and amusing manner. Thoroughly recommend the trip.

We went last year for a river tour. It was excellent value and lovely service. I took a two 7 year olds and a 9 year old and we had a lovely time. The tour is very informative. I highly recommend.

To the left of where the boat docks, with the river on your right, there is metered parking towards the park. Seemed to be a lot of spaces available whenever we walked past.
