Fancy Paddle Boarding Through London At Night?

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Secret Adventures.

Looking for something cool to do in the city? Why not see London like you've never seen it before — by cruising down the Thames on a stand up paddle board.

Think standing on a surfboard with an oar, and you have stand up paddle boarding — SUP, for those in the know.

That's just one of the activities on offer by Secret Adventures —  choose from night-time Richmond rides, Kew Gardens routes, or journeys through central London.

It's a great form of exercise, lots of fun, and something completely different to your average night out in London — why not forego the pub for an evening spent on a SUP through town?

Head to Kew Gardens for a night-time SUP activity, where you'll get to see the greenery after dark, passing Syon House and Isleworth Island before stopping at a pub (well you wouldn't want to forego the pub altogether).

Or maybe you'd like to paddle through central London, via the Grand Union Canal and past Little Venice on a one and half hour evening trip?

You'll get to sample the delights of Twickenham's stunning White Swan on the Richmond paddle boarding adventure — the pub has tables right up to the river, so sometimes the water may be lapping round your ankles.

Don't worry about never having done SUP before, or having any of the kit — with Secret Adventures, expert tuition is provided, as is all equipment.

There are also kayak and canoe adventures too, if SUP doesn't float your boat —check out all of Secret Adventure's London activities here.
