London’s kayak club for paddling on the Thames, whitewater rivers and artificial courses, surfing and sea kayaking!
Apart from that we are a friendly London canoe club who welcome all those interested in canoeing and kayaking; from beginners to experienced paddlers, paddling fanatics or just warm weather fans. 

We have weekly pool training sessions for those new to the sport, or wanting to improve. All year round we run regular paddles from our base by the River Thames, and whitewater trips away, sea kayaking, surfing and even trips abroad. The Club has everything you need to go touring on the Thames; you just need to bring suitable clothes. 

If you are new to kayaking then first come along to our weekly Pool Session to try out paddling and meet members.  

Second - after completing safety drills and acquiring some basic skills, you can advance to paddling on our Thames beginner trips.

Once you are used to paddling on the Thames, progress to paddling on white water rivers, sea kayaking and surfing. 
But don't forget to return to the pool to acquire and improve on skills such as for eskimo rolling. paddle techniques and advanced rescues.

The club has members from all over London, as well as from the local areas of Fulham, Putney, Hammersmith, Wandsworth and Chelsea. 

We are always keen to welcome new members and we are BCU affiliated.

  • Thames paddling to all recent and experienced Thames paddlers …The logic behind our current Thames paddling policy is that we stay out of harms way, so returning from up river (Chiswick Hammersmith)on the river left (north side), which is the safest.and we should be a tight group well out of the way, not impeding other vessels by being spread across the riverOn more that one occasion in the past years we have had to strongly argue this point to a group which included experienced Thames paddlers. They seemed oblivious to the risks of travelling down the centre of the 'road'We state this in our guidelines: -'Even if you are with experienced paddlers and trip leader, everyone in ...
