Enjoy a short leisurely paddle among the green canopy that surrounds this part of the river
This area of the river is non-tidal and is accessible even at lower tide states.
You may travel north as far as the White Swan Pub: paddlers are not permitted any further up the Itchen.
There is no slip at the start of this route, but a small paddle craft may be lowered into the water from the walkway.
Fishermen use this part of the river so please be mindful of sharing the space.
If you would like to travel south, see River Itchen Southern Route.
