Private River Cruise for up to 6 people on ‘Lily’

We are now CLOSED for winter and will look to re-open on the 12th of April 2021 as a part of Step 2 of the Governments COVID-19 response plan. This is not a firm date, however due to demand we have decided to open the booking system for the electric launches. Please note that due to any potential instruction from the Government this could change, in this case bookings will be refunded.

Enjoy a cruise aboard one of our traditional Edwardian passenger launches. Cruise downstream past the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Holy Trinity Church (the site of Shakespeare’s tomb) and upstream passing under the 15th Century Clopton Bridge. Once through the bridge, the scenery changes as we discover peaceful river-banks and meadows with glimpses of large secluded houses and beautiful river-side gardens.




  • Due to the current restrictions we are pleased to offer a Private 40 Minute cruise for up to 6 people of the same household/ bubble aboard our historic Edwardian vessel ‘LILY’
  • The cruise will follow the same route as our popular public 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 tranquillity of the countryside, which the river Avon passes through as it winds its way towards Alveston. This is one of the most naturally beautiful and un-spoilt stretches of navigable river anywhere in the UK.
  • You will have the entire boat to yourselves, with one driver provided, adhering to the current social distancing guidelines.
  • This experience must be booked in advance and by booking you agree that all members of your party are of the same household and of the address it is booked under.


  • £100 for the group. (6 people maximum including children and babies)
