Adventure Highlights

The ideal tonic to a busy life... paddle downstream on the tranquil wooded river of the Great Ouse. Experience the beautiful flora and fauna of the British countryside; the Willows dipping their branches in the water whilst birds and fish dart amongst the reed beds on the banks. Feel like you've left the hectic life behind and switch off in this weekend adventure. Located just over 30 mins from St Pancras by direct train, this is the perfect way to escape London and find yourself in a beautiful setting in no time at all!
