Important Notice
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a valid license / permission from the relevant authorities to use water craft on UK's waterways, rivers, lakes, etc. Not all inland water is open to paddlers, some access points / rivers are privately owned or is bounded by land which is private, so do check beforehand. Membership of a canoe union / club is very beneficial.


Useful websites

Websites with useful information to enrich your paddling experiences and knowledge.

Boating on the Thames (Making the most of the Thames)
Port of London Authority

The Tideway section of the lower River Thames is a particularly challenging and potentially hazardous section of the river with fast-moving tidal water and high volumes of river traffic. There are also official "rules of the road" and signals on bridges which paddlers should understand and obey.

The Port of London Authority has a very useful website loaded with information and advice for recreational river users. All paddlers using the Tideway should familiarise themselves with this material for their own safety. There is a section devoted to canoeists and there is also a strongly recommended useful instructional video entitled Rowing Through Central London.

British Canoe Union

The BCU is the national governing body of canoeing and kayaking in the UK. It is concerned with all paddle sports in the UK, recreational as well as competitive, in open and closed craft, paddled with single and double-bladed paddles, on inland and coastal waters as well as open ocean. An important aspect is that you be licensed, be suitably coached and know where you can paddle, etc.

Canal and River Trust

A charity entrusted with the care of 2000 miles of waterways in England and Wales. The website has useful information and this trust is looking for volunteers to become involved with the wide ranging rewarding opportunities in the work that they do. Useful guides to help plan your next trip - free places to visit.

Canoe-Camping Club

The Canoe Camping Club is a national club for touring canoeists (and kayakers) and for those who like to combine canoeing/kayaking and camping. The Club caters for everyone, with a variety of meets round the country. Some are ideal for beginners whilst others challenge the more experienced paddler. Members are always glad to offer help and friendly advice to newcomers.

This club is an active section of the Camping and Caravanning Club, and is affiliated to the British Canoe Union.

Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race

The official site for the world's renowned kayak marathon - one of the longest at 125 miles (201km). The good news here is that after a long absence of the official folding boat class, this class and associated trophy was re-instated in 2013.

Environment Agency

A very useful resource about UK's rivers. For the paddler, there is information about temporary paddling licensees at reduced rates for short periods, to river levels and condition, location of campsites at locks, and many more. One very useful service is that you can subscribe to for free, the River Conditions Update for the Thames, from Lechlade to Teddington. This service provides up-to-date information about river conditions.

Folding Kayaks Org

A very useful American based site dedicated to folding kayaks. The forum is also active with members from worldwide.

Go Canoeing

Whether you're an absolute beginner or an experienced paddler, one of the best ways to get involved in canoeing and kayaking and meeting like minded people is through the Go Canoeing ...

This website lists various Starter Sessions, Guided Tours, Paddling Events & Skills Based Workshops, and Canoe Trails,
that are held all year round at various locations around the country.

Inland Waterways Association

The IWA is a charity that campaigns for the use, maintenance and restoration of all Britain's inland navigable waterways. The website has useful information and maps of every waterway under IWA care.

Paddle Points

Paddle Points provides a central online information center where canoeists and kayakers can go to find where they can launch. The idea is simple. You search for the place in the search box on the page, and the paddle points in that area will show on a map. Clicking the various markers representing launch spots, weirs, rapids, slalom, car parking, clubs, campsites will provide more handy information. There are now over 4000 information markers covering the UK useful to paddlers on this site.

Song of the Paddle

Song of the Paddle is the UK online home for those with a love of, or an interest in, open canoes and canoeing. Combined with an active forum, this site is a very useful resource as to locations as to where you can do flat water touring, camping ideas, etc. Highly recommended site for relevant info and being a forum, anyone can post questions and expect to get instant answers from knowledgeable folks. A lovely aspect of this site are detailed blogs of recent trips.

The Rivers Access Campaign

The purpose of the Rivers Access Campaign is not only to raise awareness of the access issue on inland waterways in England (and Wales) but to bring about a change. The campaign is being undertaken by Canoe England on behalf all members of the public.

In England and Wales, unlike elsewhere in the world, the public do not have an automatic right to have access to rivers. Scotland already enjoys that right. Access to the UK’s waterways is highly restricted (EG - Owners of river banks have legal right to stop people paddling), and maintenance of the waterways is dramatically under-funded. With over 90% of the population living within two miles of a waterway, many more people would take up water sports if accessibility and facilities were improved.

"... there should be a public right of access along our inland waters.. so we can all enjoy our natural heritage...rights with responsibilities..."

UK Paddle Sports

A small friendly UK based forum site with members who have all kinds of paddle craft including coracles!

UK Rivers Guidebook

The UK Rivers Guidebook website covers the many paddable rivers in the UK. There is a very active discussion forum. It is a predominately white-water site but there is some useful information for those intent on relaxing river touring.

UK Sea Kayak Guidebook

Sister site to the UK Rivers Guidebook, this site offers information on sea kayaking trips around the UK and also has an active discussion forum discussing many sea kayaking topics.

On an ongoing basis, NERIS innovates and improves all products. IE product descriptions (text / photos) on this site is subject to change without prior notice.
