Thames River Kayaking - Hampton Court Palace

A London Tour with a tranquil twist - take a Kayaking Tour of London on the river Thames. Paddle past palaces and soak up the sights and sounds with this 90 minute London kayaking tour.

Price for 1 participant

Treat yourself and your loved ones to a London Tour with a difference, with this superb London Kayaking tour at Hampton Court. This experience shows you London from a whole new perspective, and is suitable for everyone - whether you have ever been kayaking before, this paddle is a doddle! You will make your way along the Thames at leisure enjoying, from your unusual vantage point, the sights and sounds of London's often elusive wildlife!

The tour will be narrated throughout by your knowledgeable and friendly BCU certified Kayaking instructor/tour guide, who has as much knowledge about London as he/she does about Kayaking! You paddle alongside the enormous Hampton Court Palace, once home to Henry VIII. The entire tour on water takes 90 blissful minutes.

Your Kayaking London Tour of Hampton Court begins with you meeting the instructors and getting into your gear for the day. An introduction to the very basics of kayaking is given, as well as a health and safety briefing. Your valuables will be stored, either locked in the Company van or stored in dry bags in the hatches of the kayaks.

Launch onto the water where the real fun begins, and follow your experienced Instructor along your route as he/she delivers a running commentary, chock-full of local information and history. You will spend 90 leisurely minutes paddling your way through lovely London.

We’ve been catching up with Laura from London Kayak Tours who has told us a little more about the drive behind the company! It seems Kayaking is the ideal activity for dating – keep reading to find out more!


Q. How did your passion for Kayaking begin?


A. I am from New Zealand, so typically like the outdoors and have kayaked from an early age in NZ! I like the pace of kayaking, it is adventurous and different without being too difficult for anyone. I like that it is ideal for novices and open to anyone trying out something fun, unique and active.


Q. What would you say is the best thing about seeing London from a kayak?


A. Seeing London from a kayak offers a completely unique view of the wonderful capital. It is a great place to observe the hustle and bustle of the city, whilst paddling gently down the river. The river offers a much slower pace and is much more peaceful. It is also a great position to observe some world-famous historical landmarks such as Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace. We see everything from a unique angle.


Q. What do you enjoy most about working on the River Thames?


A. It is great to do an activity I love and make a successful business out of this passion. I enjoy watching the changing seasons from a river view as well as being able to have an up-close view of river wildlife. It is fantastic being able to race alongside swans, kingfishers and ducks.


Q. Do you have any funny/ embarrassing stories to share?


A. We have had two marriage proposals and regularly take out stags and hens for their fun day out.


We have had some good dating stories, some successful relationships. We had one gentlemen bring a few different dates out kayaking with us. It was like his regular dating venue for a while.


Q. Have you ever had any celebrities take part in the tours?


A. Yes, we have had Natalie Imbruglia, Sunita Shroff and Emma Catherwood previously from Holby City.


Q. Is there anything you would like to add or share that has not been covered?


A. If you haven't been on a London Kayak Tour then you must! Our visitors have given us some great reviews on Trip Advisor. Do have a look at these and some of our pictures and videos at www.londonkayaktours.co.uk. We continue to have fun with this business and encourage everyone to try this at least once!
