Royal Albert Docks - London Regatta Centre,
Parking is free at the Regatta Centre.
Nearest DLR station is Royal Albert Dock (approx 5 minutes walk)
Please try to arrive around 12:15pm if possible - so we have time to say hello to everyone, provide you with paddles and life jackets and get on the water as close to 1pm as possible for some fun paddling. The earlier we start and finish, the earlier we get to have lunch! :)
Also, please bring cash for lunch as it will be easier than having 30+ people pay by card. It should cost around £15 or less.

Please note that in order to keep the costs low, the trips are set up in such a way that they can be fully managed online. The descriptions are very detailed and try to answer all your questions and you will find additional information in pages section of the website. Please only email us if your query is not answered in the event's description and please only call us in case of emergency. I'm afraid we will not be able to get back to you if your query is answered above as with over 60 events coming almost 4,000 members and current volume of emails, this would require hiring admin support and setting up a call centre, which as you can imagine would increase the costs of the events considerably. Please help us provide excellent trips at fantastic value for you and keep your emails to the minimum. Please make sure you read the event's description before contacting us.
