Paddleboarding at Paddington Basinsup the canals of london

We love being able to SUP at Paddington Basin, an incredible 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. Why not also try some delicious Scandinavian food at KuPP restaurant after your paddle. 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. Please be advised that smoking is not permitted at any of our locations.
