“Bang for your buck! Or ... er pound”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

A nice forty minute ride around the Severn between Welsh and English bridges covering most of the town from the viewpoint of the river.

At 7.50 per adult, you can't really go wrong. They serve drinks during the day, and have various other special cruises at other times (like their ghost cruise).

Good commentary from the captain will entertain you on the return ride as he tells you about some of the things you can see from the boat and about Shrewsbury.

“Relaxing trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

A good way to see some of Shrewsbury and gain some local knowledge from the commentary. Very relaxing and quiet. A good tip is to buy tickets at the tourist information in the town to save some money. Drinks and snacks are served on board but are quite expensive. It takes about an hour in total with about 45 minutes on the water. Lovely way to spend an hour.

“Informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Myself personally thought it a little expensive for just 40mins on the river, 1 adult is £11.50 and children £3.50. Overall though the crew are well attentive, the captain is well informative with lots of knowledge about Shrewsbury & myself as a nosey person just loved looking at the fabulous houses, park, churches & pubs along the riverside. Will defiantley be back..

Thank you so much for your positive review, its great to know you had a good time on board Sabrina. We did notice that you mentioned the price for an adult as £11.50, it is actually £7.50, and with boat tours in Chester and York more expensive we hope we offer value for money locally. Please note you can also get a 10% discount if you book online 24 hours in advance via our website www.sabrinaboat.co.uk Thank you again for the positive review and we hope you will join us again to enjoy the river with us.

Kind regards

“Lovely relaxing boat trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

We went on the Sabrina boat trip whilst visiting Shrewsbury. We bough tickets from in the town as we noticed the boat trip looked very popular. It was beautiful weather when we took the trip and it was just a beautiful little afternoon trip along the Severn. There is snacks and drinks available on the boat and there is very good commentry given by the captain on the journey back pointing out all the historic buildings.

A nice relaxing way to see the town in a different way, the commentary was very good, as were the on board snacks, and seating.
