River Cruises

Enjoy a cruise aboard one of our traditional Edwardian passenger launches. Our Boats, originally from the Lake District and Loch Lommond represent some of the finest boat building of the Edwardian Era. Our Boats are lovingly maintained to ensure that you enjoy the boat, just as much as you enjoy the River. 

Our river cruises take you on a sightseeing tour on which you will enjoy stunning and unique views of the Royal Shakesspeare Theatre and Holy Trinity Church as well as experiencing the tranquility of the counrtyside, which the river avon passes through as it winds its way towards Alveston. This is one of the most naturally beautiful and unspoilt stretches of navigable river anywhere in the U.K so come and enjoy it aboard some of the country's finest Edwardian passneger vessels. 

Our Launches are available for Private Charter and Public Cruises and operate from Late March to Late October. Cruises operate from the Bancroft Gardens everyday throughout this period and operate from The Boathouse on Swans Nest Lane in periods of fine weather and weekends in high summer. 

Electric Powered Boats

Our boats are electric powered, quiet and vibration free for a more enjoyable experience for all onboard. Our boats are zero emission and are therefore kinder to the river and its wonderful ecosystem.
