Overview
More
The Leam Boat Centre is based in beautiful Jephson Gardens along the river in Leamington Town Centre. The park's old Victorian boathouse was renovated thirteen years ago as part of the Millennium Project and it is now a thriving centre of activity. It's a lovely place to come for a day out as a family; row boats, motor boats and pedalos can be hired as and when you arrive and floating along the river for a carefree, sunlit hour is a wonderful experience. For more adventurous visitors, canoes and kayaks are also available for hire. The Leam Boat Centre also gives lessons in canoeing and kayaking and can cater to all levels of experience, from taster sessions for beginners through to training courses for instructors. Paddle Power kayak courses are held throughout the holidays for children to get their first taste of the sport. It might turn into a lifelong passion!

Hired the peddling boat for two people. Paid £15 for an hour. Lovely scenery. Had a good laugh peddling in the river. Easy to do thoroughly enjoyed an hour of fun.

This is a delightful part of the river for boating from Mill Gardens. You may catch a glimpse of the heron or nesting swans.

Very friendly staff and a choice of motor boats and rowing boats. It's nice on a sunny day to take a boat for a while along the river .
