Took my 10 year old daughter to Shepperton today to the canoe centre . Really great day which my daughter loved . 4 hours canoeing on Thames in double boat for £35 , thought was really good value , all kit was included , life jackets , waterproof bag for valuables . If anyone short of ideas over the summer holidays would highly recommend as a cheap , active day out . Feeding ducks and some little baby ducks from the boat in the middle of the river was really special , great day . There are a few pubs on the river can stop at for lunch and we went down thought a lock at Sudbury which was great fun . Only thing would say getting in and out of the boat for lunch wasn’t that easy ! !
