Where is it Located
What to wear

For your Sussex Kayaking River Trip you should bring along a wet suit or warm layers to paddle in; fleece material and wool are best. You should also bring a bottle of water and a snack for the half way point, and sun cream if it's a hot day. All kayaking equipment will be supplied for you by the centre. The trip finishes next to a Harvey's brewery, so it's usually a good idea to bring a little bit of money for a well-deserved drink afterwards!


The Sussex Kayaking River Trip can sometimes be affected by extremely adverse weather conditions; if the river conditions are unsuitable you will be able to reschedule.

Kayak Experience

This Kayak Experience was brilliant. Luckily for us it was a beautiful morning, which made the 2.5 hour kayak even more enjoyable. It suited me perfectly, as I was able to take my time throughout.

This experience was amazing! I especially enjoyed the leisurely pace that the group went at, as then I could take in the beautiful surroundings of the countryside and enjoy a sociable conversation with the other people in the group. I am quite an experienced kayaker, however I appreciated the slower speed as it was more relaxing to enjoy in the hot weather.
