Paddleboarding at kew bridgethe original home of sup in london
Situated under the arches of a historic bridge (built 1903), this base is our environmental hub located conveniently on the water's edge and offering unique views of London. You can learn paddleborading skills and how to use the Thames Tideway safely. We run a comprehensive programme at this base throughout the year. There are changing facilities and showers available.
If you are planning to become a regular user of the Thames, we offer Thames Skills and Knowledge courses to bring your skills and knowledge up to a competent level.
We also offer opportunities to learn more about the river environment on SUP Natural History Tours.
Trips and lessons will either head towards Hammersmith or Richmond, depending on the direction of the tide, either way you will get fantastic views of West London from the Thames. Friendly Kew Roastery just by Kew Bridge station serves excellent coffee and healthy food - with a discount for A360 paddlers if you bring a reusable mug. The Stables Pizza next door offers great pizzas and pies and 50 types of cider with a 10% discount for A360 customers. There are four outstanding riverside pubs and The Strand Thai Cafe is opposite.
