SUP 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.
