Sunday Roast Paddle

sup - Up to 20 people


Lets head out on the River Thames in November and get to know our familiar stretch in a different season. 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 paddling back to Petersham.

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

What to bring

It is a good idea to bring a re-useable bottle of drinking water to take with you.

Spare clothes and a towel are also recommended as is a change of footwear because your feet are very likely to get wet. These can be left in our vehicle at your own risk.

If you have a wet suit this wintery paddle do bring it, if not layer up. Wetsuit shoes are advisable.

If it is particularly sunny, it is recommended that you wear sun-cream and a hat. Sunglasses are also good. Be aware that can they sink quickly... so do not bring your best pair.

Please note that there are no toilets or changing facilities at River Lane, but there is woodland at River Lane that some people choose to change in.

The nearest toilet is at the Petersham Nurseries if they are open.


ou will be paddling for approximately an hour at a time with short stops along the way.

You are going to be paddling in beautifully stable touring kayaks so it is unlikely that you will end up in the water....although it can happen!

We provide PFD's (personal floatation devices) that will keep you buoyant in the water if you do end up in it. We can then help you back onto stand up paddle board.

If you are a weak or non swimmer, please do let your instructor know so that they are aware of it.


Starting with a short briefing you’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 you’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.
