Shropshire Raft Tours is based on the River Severn, located in Ironbridge, Shropshire. The trips cover 2 kilometres with a round trip of 2 hours from meeting at the Wharfage car park (TF8 7NH) at Shropshire Raft Tour's booking kiosk right down to the trip on the river and returning in the free shuttle minibus. The capacity of raft is 16 passengers so they can take all of you down river (young families and schools) as they have ample rafts to go round. Go rafting!

This is your holiday, so put the paddles down please. Due to all ages of child being allowed to be on the boat, they do not expect them to paddle. The trained guides do all the work taking you down river, enabling you and your children to take in the views and photograph the scenery. They even take photos you can view at the end of the trip. Just smile, you need only enjoy yourself.

The rafts act like river taxis, their size and safety enable anybody of any age to enjoy. They are both comfortable and stable and give you the experience of the river up close. There are only tranquil sections on the river as you float downstream and enjoy the sites along the way.

From starting at Easter with our Easter egg river hunt, all the way through to the summer ‘Spot the river Gnome' and Halloween dress up raft party day, they have lots going on for children during the season.

They invite you to travel with them on a river rafting mini-adventure and share their love of the Ironbridge Gorge and the Severn River. The rafting trips are great for young and old alike looking for a more mild adventure.
