River Cruises

Enjoy a cruise aboard one of our traditional Edwardian passenger launches. Our river cruises take you on a sightseeing tour on which you will enjoy stunning and unique views of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Holy Trinity Church as well as experiencing the tranquility of the counrtyside. This is one of the most naturally beautiful and unspoilt stretches of navigable river anywhere in the U.K.

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

Most of our boats are electric powered, quiet and vibration free for a more enjoyable experience for all onboard. With zero emissions they are kinder to the river and its diverse ecosystem.  We are also proud Members of the Electric Boat Association.
