Our educational boat trips are specifically designed for parties of school students.

Shrewsbury and the River Severn provide a rich source of geographic, historic and geological study material in line with the current educational curriculum. We aim to provide an introduction to these topics helping children to actively learn while discovering facts about the River Severn. Full commentary is provided by our knowledgeable Skippers and can be adapted to suit children of any age.

If you would like our Skippers commentary to focus more on a certain aspect of the River Severn, Shrewsbury or the Shropshire area, please contact the office.

At the end of their visit, students should have an appreciation of:

  • Why Shrewsbury was built on the River Severn
  • How the land along the River Severn has been used
  • How the River Severn was used for trade and transport
  • How the River Severn shaped the growth of industry in Shropshire
  • What are the cause and effects of flooding and how we respond
  • What wildlife lives in the River Severn

Educational boat trip worksheets

These worksheets can either be used during the trip or back in the classroom to reinforce what has been learnt.
