What can I expect on the day

Take to the Thames for a fantastic day out! On this special trip, you will have the chance to drift peacefully in your kayak, on a gentle self-powered sightseeing tour from the river that will show you all the sights of this well-to-do area in Surrey, from the unique viewpoint of the water.

This is a first class opportunity to glide past the grandeur of Hampton Court palace, taking in the striking architecture from an unrivalled perspective. The whole tour will be hosted by a fully qualified British Canoe Union (BCU) instructor, who will also act as tour guide, pointing out key places of interest and filling you in on all the history as you pass by.

During the 90 minute tranquil experience on the water, you will set off from the slipway beside the pub “Ye Olde Swan” at Thames Ditton and witness the beauty and some of the well-known and less well-known landmarks along this part of the river . However, the Palace itself has to be the highlight of this remarkable tour.

From your kayak, you will gain an unmatched riverside view of the iconic glittering golden gates that lead the way to Hampton Court Palace. Originally built for Cardinal Wolsey and then later taken back by King Henry VIII in the early 16th Century, when the palace was extended. Hampton Court is a stunning mix of two distinctly contrasting architectural styles, domestic Tudor and Baroque and you'll see everything from the likes of the estate's riding school to the Royal Mews.

To get the most from this day out you do not need to be a professional in kayaking, as initial training is given to all guests, making sure everyone is ready to face the open water. In addition, of course, all the safety gear is issued before setting sail. Make sure to take full advantage of this brilliant offer, book today to avoid disappointment!
