Boating Holidays on the River Thames

The River Thames combines historic splendour and glorious countryside with delightful riverside pubs, villages and small towns. A superb array of attractions are within easy reach of the river’s banks – Hampton Court, Runnymede, Windsor Castle, Eton College, Legoland.

On the upper reaches of the Thames your canal boat or cruiser could take you through Oxford, city of dreaming spires and Inspector Morse, and then on to Abingdon or Wallingford, recently featured in the BBC’s adaptation of Three Men in a Boat. Closer to London your boating holiday on the Thames could take you past historic Clevedon, Bray (home to the Roux brothers’ Waterside Inn) and then to Marlow and Henley, famous for its regatta.
