|Based on National Trust land on the banks of the Wey Navigation in Godalming, we have a building with changing rooms, a toilet and hand washing facilities. At the rear of the building is storage for our fleet of kayaks, open canoes and Stand Up Paddle Boards. We have equipment suitable for all types of water – be it calm conditions on the canal or the white water rivers that we visit during the winter months. We share a jetty with Godalming District Scouts and there is plenty of parking available for users of the centre.
Our centre is a great place to have a go at paddling and then go on to gain more skills.
We have a huge variety of canoes and kayaks available to hire to fit the shortest, tallest, thinest and festively plumb paddler.
All of our boats are fitted with added buoyancy either in the form of solid foam blocks or air bags for added safety.
We also have a selection of buoyancy aids, paddles, cags, throw lines, tow lines, spray decks, dry bags, lining and tracking kits, poles, barrels, sails and helmets.

Wey Navigation History
The Wey Navigation was opened in 1653 and in 1764 the Godalming Navigation opened, creating a 20-mile waterway running from the Thames at Weybridge to Godalming. Although originally used as a goods route via the Thames to London it is now used by pleasure craft and provides an ideal location to learn.
