You pick the boat up from our boat yard in Caversham and can then choose where you cruise to. Destinations include: Henley, Windsor, Hampton Court (on longer holidays of 14 nights), Oxford, Wallingford. Before your holiday starts, we provide 2 hours tuition and when you are confident driving the boat, you depart on your holiday. Most places along the Thames are free to moor. There is stunning countryside and the part of the Thames where you'll be cruising has been the inspiration for the famous book 'Wind In The Willows.' Jerome K Jerome also made this area famous when he wrote his book : 'Three Men In A Boat.' The quaint towns and villages you pass through on your cruise provide a variety of restaurants, cafes, shopping and bars. We provide you, ahead of your holiday, a booklet which has all the cruisng routes and how far you can cruise in a day, helping you plan your own holiday itnerary. Moor outside Hampton Court Palace or whynot cruise right in to the heart of Oxford and visit this lovely historic city. The choice is yours. The beauty of a boating holiday is that you are free to do as you choose and can cruise at your own pace, moor up when you feel like it. There is no pressure or stress, a perfect holiday for those wishing to unwind.
