Run in conjunction with Beccles Lido, TheCanoeMan's Hire centres is in Beccles, less than half a mile from the town centre.
Beccles is a beautiful market town nestling on the banks of the River Waveney close to the Norfolk / Suffolk Border. The river here is lovely with a wide range of wildlife to be seen from Kingfishers to Otters.
One of the most attractive and unspoilt stretches of the River Waveney from the quiet market town of Beccles, our canoe trail travels west towards the unique riverside pub at Geldeston. Dependent on how fast you paddle and how much “pub time” you take, the journey from our centre to “The Locks” will take you about 1.5 hours each way and makes a lovely day out. The stretch of river above “The Locks” is REALLY quiet being unnavigable to other craft so you can lose yourself in the peace and tranquillity of the wonderful River Waveney. With our hire centre being based at the Beccles Lido this gives you an ideal opportunity to either start or finish your day with an invigorating swim in one of the few remaining outdoor pools in the region.
Booking is essential and must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
