All the kit you need for paddling adventures
We are a thriving paddlesports and boat hire centre in the heart of regency royal Leamington Spa. We’re fully equipped to offer boat hire, paddlesports courses and equipment sales to people of all ages and abilities.
We offer canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, row boats and pedalos for hire along our beautiful stretch of the river Leam. As you head upstream, you’ll paddle through Welches Meadow and Leam Valley nature reserves; both maintained by the Warwickshire wildlife trust.
As an approved British Canoeing provider, we can cater our courses for beginners all the way up to professionals and developing new coaches! We provide a large variety of courses across all paddlesports disciplines and deliver many British Canoeing awards.
Our equipment shop is operated by seasoned paddlers with experience in all disciplines. We know the kit we sell inside out and have used most of it ourselves out on the water. We’ll always do our best to offer you accurate advice and sell you the correct piece of kit for your needs.
See you on the water!

Leam Boat Centre is based just across the water from Jephson Gardens. The centre was built back in 1901 and has been providing the people of Leamington Spa with boating ever since!
In 1998 the centre was badly flooded and sadly it’s contents were destroyed. A heritage lottery grant provided the funds to restore the boat centre alongside Jephson Gardens park.
For over two decades, Leam Boat Centre has been operating along this stretch of water, following on from a long line of successors. We try to give as many people as possible the opportunity to enjoy being out on the water.
