Paddleboarding at Paddington Basinsup the canals of london

Our Paddington Basin venue was set up in the summer of 2014.  This is an ideal spot right in the heart of London with great access to Regents Canal and Grand Union Canal.  We offer all aspects of SUP at this location.

Paddington Basin is an inner city location close to Paddington Station and near the junction of the Regents Canal and the Grand Union Canal. The basin itself is the terminus of the Paddington Arm of the Grand Junction Canal. Thanks to Merchant Square - managing agent of the basin - we are delighted to be able to bring SUP lessons and trips, SUP tasters and SUP yoga to the heart of London.  We have access to showers and changing rooms most days and times for after paddling, but please check before booking, if a shower is essential. 

Why not also try some delicious Scandinavian food at KuPP restaurant after your paddle.


Paddington Basin is easy to access by public transport, on foot or bike. We are right by the Rolling Bridge, just 100 metres from KuPP  cafe and GoBoat London. 

Train - Paddington Station is only a few minutes walk from the Basin. The nearest London Underground stations are Edgware Road and Paddington, the latter also being served by National Rail. You can check train times and destinations on the National Rail Enquiries website.  From the main station facing the canal entrance, turn right and follow the canal. Cross the first bridge and continue along the canal heading east. You'll see our canoes and SUP storage units on your left by the Rolling Bridge.

From Paddington High Steet, walk north towards Edgeware Road and turn left into Merchant Square just after St Mary's Hospital.  You will see the end of Paddington Basin. Head west along the Basin and you will see our SUP base by the Rolling Bridge, on the canal-side of Waterside House.
