Day Boats

The pleasures of boating on the Royal River Thames

 

Light and shade, sun and shadows, rippling water, a different pace of life - these are the things you will appreciate in a day spent on the river.

 

The rush of driving along busy roads, of queuing in congested towns will fade into the background as you travel at a gentle pace - your own pace - where the beauty of the surrounding scene is something you and all in your party can see and enjoy.

 

Travelling upstream, a day's cruising from Datchet will bring you to towns such as Royal Windsor and, on the opposite bank, Eton, then the pretty village of Bray and a little way farther on Maidenhead with its memories of Edwardian punting heydays.

 

At the limit of your cruising range are Boulter's Lock and the beech-wooded heights of Cliveden. Throughout the greater part of your trip the Round Tower of Windsor Castle remains a still and familiar landmark.

First time on a boat?

Our staff will show you the controls of the boat, explain operating procedures and demonstrate where necessary. You will also be given

information about the rules of navigation. In inclement weather the canvas top can be drawn back to provide cover.
