Kayaking on Exeter Quayside

About

Exeter is home to England’s oldest ship canal (built in the 1560s) which is still navigable by boat and idea for canoeing and kayaking – or if you fancy something a bit different, paddle boarding! Taking things at this slower pace means you can explore the flora and fauna of the river valley park as you head towards the waterside Double Locks pub for refreshments. 

Don’t worry if you have never done it before – experienced trainers are available to help you at Haven Banks Outdoor Education Centre.
