Special Events, The Severn Bore and Bore Breakfasts
The Old Passage is sited at the perfect spot from which to see one of the world's most amazing natural phenomena; the Severn Bore....and you don't have to be a surfer to appreciate the spectacle.
Here at certain combinations of the tides, the rising water is funneled up the estuary into a wave of up to 2 metres. Travelling rapidly upstream against the river current the Bore travels a distance of approximately 25 miles between Awre and Gloucester.
The largest Bores occur in spring, but smaller bores can be seen throughout the year.
