Really enjoyable night -fantastic vegan food on the lovely Sabrina Boat! Would recommend a trip on the river to anyone visiting the town, or to anyone living here who fancies something a bit different.

We went on the Ghost Cruise, which was great fun and unusual way to do a ghost tour, it definitely seems as if most of Shrewsbury is haunted! Be warned, it gets VERY cold and although they provide blankets, it'd be advisable to wrap up.

This boat cruise is an interesting way to see Shrewsbury from another angle - and since the Severn is one of the reasons for the town's existence, it's a very appropriate viewpoint. The quality of the commentary, and the pleasantness of the "crew", only add...More

this was quite a relaxing and informative trip down the river. Refreshments are available on board as are toilet facilities. The trip was complimentary from the hotel we stayed in but if it had not been I would have found the price reasonable

To the left of where the boat docks, with the river on your right, there is metered parking towards the park. Seemed to be a lot of spaces available whenever we walked past.
