About Us - Brighton Canoes

Brighton Canoes Ltd & The Canoe Shops Group

Brighton Canoes Ltd was opened in 2004 as part of The Canoe Shops Group. The business quickly developed to become the leading canoe & kayak stores in Sussex supplying a full range of paddlesport products throughout the South East, London and further afield. Brighton Canoes offers & stocks a huge range of kayaking, canoeing and water sport based products & equipment. Our friendly team of staff are all keen paddlers themselves and are always happy to offer helpful and unbiased advice.

Despite its name Brighton Canoes is actually based in Newhaven a short distance east along the coast from Brighton in East Sussex. In 2012 the business relocated into bigger premises. The new space has allowed us to further improve the customer experience of shopping with Brighton Canoes with an increased product range & improved display. Customers are free to visit our store for advice and for a chance to try on or sit in products they may be considering purchasing. For further details of our location & how to find us see our Directions page.


For those based too far away to visit us in person, we offer nationwiide mail order service throughout the UK & Ireland. From nose clips to open canoes we have sent items all over the world. Orders can be placed via our website, telephone or post, for full details see our Ordering Options. If you would still prefer to visit a shop and receive advice on products in person then visit for details of other Canoe Shops Group stores throughout the country.


Brighton Canoes offers a huge product range which includes general purpose, whitewater, touring & sea kayaks as well as sit-on-tops, inflatables, open canoes & all required equipment & accessories. If you are not sure which type of kayak or canoe is best for you then check out our New Paddler page or give us a call where our staff will be happy to advise you.
