SUP the canals of London

Brentford Lock is a quiet canal location,  close to the lock where the River Brent joins the Grand Union Canal. There is access to showers and changing rooms, along with a new pontoon to access the canal. Ideal for beginners sessions, children’s parties, youth groups, family groups, or groups of adults looking to try SUP in a quiet, mellow location with very little boat traffic. 

Please note that advanced bookings are required for paddleboarding at Brentford. Get in touch with the team for more information via
