Kayak Across London

The Plan

As the light start’s to fade join us for an evening paddle right through the centre of London. Seeing all of London’s landmarks brightly bathed in light, Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s, Bank Side, The City Tower Bridge and the Old Naval College to name a few.

This adventure starts on the beach at Vauxhall Bridge and finishes in Greenwich. It is planned to coincide with the falling tide, making the trip suitable for all abilities. We use stable double kayaks with rudders, all kit provided and staffed by professional guides. The event is for adults only.

The trip will finish at Greenwich next to the Old Naval College, a 10 minutes walk to DLR station. The adventure will take around 2 to 2.5 hours.
