Paddle to the Pub

kayak - Up to 16 people


Woodmill offers idyllic paddling along the River Itchen, in the heart of Southampton. Why not join us for a paddle along the River before disembarking at The White Swan Pub for some refreshments with a view? Whether you join us to make new friends, or want to bring your friends and family, this is arguably one of the best ways to kick back and relax on the water.

Why Paddle to the Pub with Woodmill?

  1. Our sessions are led by friendly, knowledgeable guides
  2. Our sessions are both family-friendly and group-friendly – suitable for all ages
  3. We have a variety of Double Sit on Top Kayaks or Canadian Canoes suitable for 2-3 people
  4. All specialist kit is provided – including Buoyancy aids and paddles
  5. Waterproofs tops and trousers are also available – just in case the British weather is determined to get you wet!

Our Paddle to the Pub trips begin and conclude at Woodmill Outdoor Activities Centre. Free parking, changing and toilet facilities are available onsite. Enjoy a paddle upstream to The White Swan Pub, before enjoying drinks (or a quick bite to eat) prior to the paddle back downstream to Woodmill.

Please note:

The White Swan Pub require pre-bookings, due to COVID-19. Please ensure you have called ahead (023 8047 3322) and pre-booked your table (allow for 1 hour 15 minutes after the start time of your guided tour). Food and drinks are not included in the cost of this trip.

What to bring

Your friends and family (if they've not already booked!) will make this a great experience for all.

We recommend you bring closed toe shoes (which you don't mind getting wet) and a change of clothes - just in case you end up damp.
