All the kit you need for paddling adventures
There has been a boating lake and boat house in Mill Gardens since the Victorian heyday of Leamington Spa. After falling into disrepair the boat house was restored in 2001 as part of the rejuvenation of Jephson Gardens Park, now a thriving activity centre offering Boat hire, Canoe, Kayak and Paddleboard Courses and trips as well as operating a comprehensive paddle sports shop.
Leam Boat Centre is a well established paddlesport retailer providing kit to novices and experts alike, as well as providing bulk orders to trade customers such as outdoor centres or canoe clubs. We cover everything from recreation and touring, through to whitewater, freestyle and sea kayaking. One of our great advantages is that we are a river side centre which allows you to take advantage on our comprehensive demo fleet, allowing you to try before you buy!
Here at Leam Boat Centre we are based in the Victorian Jephsons gardens at the heart of Leamington Spa in Warwickshire just 45 minutes from Birmingham. From our small boating lake you can head straight out onto the placid River Leam where you can head upstream through the picturesque Newbold Comyn nature reserve. For longer hires in canoes, kayaks or on paddleboards you can head downstream and join the river Avon as far as Warwick Castle.
Learn to Canoe, Kayak or Paddleboard with us in this beautiful location or further afield on one of our river trips. Our passionate and experienced coaches provide courses in all forms of paddle sport, catering for everyone, from those who are venturing out on the water for the first time to experienced paddlers who want to further skills or train to become coaches, see more on our courses here.
We also offer hire, with Rowing boats, Pedalos, Canoes, Kayaks and Paddleboards all available to hire for durations ranging from a half hour to full days.
