River Arun Kayaking Trip - West Sussex
Kayaking on the River Arun - Stopham Bridge (Near Pulborough) to Pallingham Quay
The River Arun cuts through a beautiful section of the South Downs with steep hills either side of the river, tall reeds, the occasional lily and great wildlife spotting opportunities! Along the way you’ll be passing under picturesque old railway bridges and taking full advantage of the beautiful views whilst enjoying being out paddling on the water. Surrounded by woodland and open fields, this is the perfect way to enjoy the English countryside at it’s best.
