In light of COVID-19, please make sure you check with your travel and accommodation providers before travelling.


Norwich owes much of its rich history to the river - any visitor to the city would be missing out if they didn't take a trip along it. Norwich Canoe Hire Company is located in the centre of the city, very near to the Playhouse Theatre and the Norwich University of the Arts campus, and offers an excellent starting point for any river adventure.

We offer Canadian canoes which are ideal for relaxing trips and fun on the water. We also hire pedal-powered canoes which cover distance effortlessly and leave hands free to take photos - the best way to see Norwich by boat is with one of our pedal-powered canoes.

There is so much to see along the river - in one hour travelling downstream in a pedal-canoe, there is Cow Tower, a medieval artillery tower, Pulls Ferry which was key to the construction of the cathedral, Norwich City Football Club, and many bridges rich in history. Stop for a picnic along the way!

Buoyancy aids and guidance on paddling and pedaling is provided.
