  • Really fun evening of stand up paddle with Sam! We started at Putney and went down to Kew with our stuff in a dry bag safely on the instructor's board. Great fun for beginners and more experienced people, the boards felt very stable. Sam pointed out all the sites and told us about the wildlife of the river and then we got a train back into London 2 minutes walk from where we ended in Kew. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something a bit different to do outdoors!
  • Great visit to Paddington last Friday with a group of 7 from work for paddle boarding. Excellent service before and during and easy arrangement on arrival. Fantastic guide Sam and great experience going around the basin and Grand Canal. Not as hard as some might think either! Would definitely recommend. Thanks guys
  • I had been looking for a fun and physical day out for my team at work and decided to have a group SUP experience. What a fun day, everyone really enjoyed it. We had smiles on our faces the entire time and got a little bit of a work out :) The team at Active 360 were super helpful and made it accessible for everyone. Definitely will do it again! A big thumbs up from the team at yogahaven
  • Booked 3 hour trip for my fiancé's birthday and it was really fun. The instructors were really friendly and attentive. I am terrified of water but the paddle boards were a lot more stable that I expected. Will be back soon. Special thanks to Sam for such an great experience.
  • Brilliant evening out for beginners, we had a really fun time. Safety was taken seriously too. Our instructor Sam was very knowledgeable about the sport and the history of the river, and he made sure we had fun.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
