river thames boat hire
Available from mid april until october
Please note that our family riverboats are available to book until 30th October 2016.
Enjoy a lazy time cruising down the rippling River Thames in one of our exclusive riverboats. It's very laid back yet thrilling and great fun... sail past weeping willows, riverside houses and boats and cruisers lining the riverbanks… take turns to steer - and remember to 'drive' on the right… stop off for a pint in the riverside pubs… admire the oarsmen and women as they row past you… navigate locks… tuck into a tasty picnic prepared especially for you.
Go upstream for the day and you'll see Windsor Castle towering above you. Downstream, you'll pass through Staines and Laleham where there are plenty of pretty pubs with moorings, where you can stop for a pint or glass of wine.
It's a beautiful way to spend time together during your stay at our Thames river hotel. Both of our boats take up to 6 passengers - with room for a giant picnic basket too! And because they're powered by an electric motor, it's wonderfully peaceful.
