A Boating Experience

Set sail for a scenic cruise along the river. From 1st April until 4th September our riverboats will be back in their rightful place on the water, waiting patiently for you to climb aboard. Whether you’re looking for an adventurous day trip for all the family or an intimate and picturesque setting to enjoy a date with the one you love, we have a fleet of boats prepared for your arrival. For families of six we have an electric-powered riverboat which little explorers can take turns to steer down the river, playing as the captain of the ship. Alternatively, should you wish to enjoy the river with friends we have the Antaris Sixty6 Launch riverboat, which features a Bluetooth stereo, a fully collapsible roof for those sunny days and drinks coolers to keep your favourite tipple cold. To complete your outing, we can provide a picnic for the whole party, prepared freshly to order.

Paddle Boarding

A perfect springtime activity for those with sturdy sea legs, glide gracefully along the river in this fun but relaxing sport. An alternative way to explore, our paddle boards are available to hire for four hours either in the morning or afternoon. Only adventurers with previous paddling experience will be able to rent our paddle boards, however, if you’re interested in lessons, just SUP UK is located five minutes from our hotel. With friendly and knowledgeable instructors, these sessions are always good fun!

Fancy yourself as a keen fisher with a beady eye for the best catch? Then you’ve come to the right place. The River Thames is home to a myriad of fish: bream, barbel, perch, roach and carp, so make sure to book a slot on our jetty and enjoy an early morning or sunset session. It is worth noting, however, that fishing is on a ‘catch and release’ basis, equipment will not be provided and an appropriate license must be held.
