Had a great trip and bar prices not overly expensive. Captain was very informative and told us about a few things that we otherwise never would had known about. Would recommend this very pleasant boat ride.

Excellent experience! 40+ Ladies of a mature age had a great float with informative commentary from the Captain down the Severn. What a wonderful time we had on the Sabrina drinking tea/coffee while enjoying the scenery in the sunshine - highly recommend the trip

This was a great find on a day trip to Shrewsbury. Very informative narrative and delightful trip all round... well worth the money very reasonable and concessions for pensioners too. Will board the Sabrina again next time we visit this city

For £28 some people would think this is a lot of money, but for 7 of us youngest being 4 and eldest being 14. We thought this was excellent value,our kids, me and my wife absolutely loved it, the skipper and crew were fantastic throughout.

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.
