London’s kayak club for paddling; on the Thames, sea kayaking, whitewater rivers and Lea Valley artificial course.
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.
