Went on the Sabrina boat trip on the Severn in Shrewsbury, most enjoyable cruise. reasonable price, lovely pot of tea warmed us up as it was a very cold morning. The skipper and crew were very helpful and informative. Commentary was excellent. Well worth a visit.

Residents of Shrewsbury we had taken the Sabrina boat for granted. Then on impulse we decide to give it a go one sunny afternoon. Very good value for money too. Pleasant little trip up the river and back and some good informative commentary.

Paying £8 per adult for a 45 minute trip on the Severn is value for money. The commentary by Geoff the skipper for our trip was enlightening, humorous and educational. The crew were pleasant and welcoming

A great way to spend a morning and to see and learn about Shrewsbury. Coffee and drinks are served on board and you are treated to an informative and amusing commentary by Ian. Great.

This is a fantastic way of spending an afternoon in Shrewsbury! We strolled from Greyfriars Bridge to Victoria Quay along the riverbank in glorious Spring sunshine (about 30 mins) catching glimpses of the town skyline & buildings without appreciating their history or relevance. We then boarded a comfortable but unassuming pleasure craft for a sedate 'cruise' from the Welsh Bridge... More

We were very warmly welcomed on to the boat, immediately offered a drink and the boat tour was a lovely way to see some of what Shrewsbury has to offer. The commentary was great on the return trip. We really enjoyed the trip and it was a lovely way to start our little break.
