The Severn Bore is one of Britain's most spectacular natural phenomena. The tidal range of the Severn Estuary is the second highest in the world, being as much as 50 feet.
The River Severn Estuary has a rapid decrease in width and also a rapid change in the depth of the river, thereby forming a funnel shape. As the incoming tide travels up the estuary, it is routed into an ever descreasing channel, thus forming the bore wave.
