Lunch at The White Swan Canoe Trip

canoe - Up to 18 people


Hop aboard our open Canadian-style canoes for a fun and sociable canoe trip along the River Thames. Suitable for all abilities, our friendly instructors will guide you through the basics before an easy-going paddle to an 18th Century riverside pub. Dip into the history of the Thames as you paddle past Eel Pie Island, before mooring up at The White Swan in Twickenham – a thriving, family-friendly where you can sip real ales and tuck into a gourmet lunch while the kids hit the slipway. Hunker by the fireside or bask in the sunny garden before canoeing back to Petersham, then take the plunge for a wild swim if you dare.

*Please note that lunch is not included in the price of the trip.


This is an easy going paddle suitable for beginners and experienced paddlers alike.

If you can take a walk in the countryside you should be able to paddle!


Starting with a short briefing we’ll then launch to explore the river towards Teddington. Paddling past Eel Pie Island you’ll find yourself moored up at The White Swan Pub to enjoy a lovely lunch.

Once you have settled up for your lunch we’ll return to the water to paddle back to Petersham Meadow and River Lane under the watchful gaze of the Royal Star and Garter Home.
