Hundreds of people are expected to line the banks of the River Severn this weekend as the rowers take to the water for the annual Stourport Regatta.

This two day is bringing together around 1,200 competitors to the area from across the country.

Spurned on by the success of the rowers in Team GB at the 2012 Olympics this years regatta is sure to be an exciting event.

You can witness all the events at the Stourport Regatta from a Canal Boat Holiday booked from Lowesmore Wharf in Worcester.

Stourport is located on the banks of the River Severn in the picturesque Severn Valley and the Stourport Canal Basins are made up of five historic basins and is home to nearly 100 Narrow Boats and yachts.

It is a charming Georgian town full of gracious architecture and for a town miles away from the sea Stourport on Severn has a delightful maritime atmosphere.

Stourport on Severn is unique as it is the only town in Britain that was built solely as a consequence of the coming of the canals.

The Staffordshire and Worcester Canal linked the River Severn with the Trent And Mersey Canal and after Birmingham Stourport became the busiest inland port in the Midlands.

Whilst on a Canal Boat Holiday to Stourport take a trip on The Severn Railway which joins Kidderminster to Bridgenorth via Bewdley and for most of the way the journey follows the meandering course of the River Severn.

Take a picnic to The Wyre Forest was once part of a much larger forest that was once a medieval hunting ground.

Go Ape in the Wyre Forest on a hire wire forest adventure, climb the giant obstacle courses through the trees using ladders and ropes.

Make your way through the forest on the walkways, bridges and tunnels finish off with a ride on the zip lines.
