The Cruises

The 40 minute round trip is great for families with younger children. Travel upstream from the dock at Windsor as far as Boveney Lock, with spectacular views of the castle and the surrounding countryside, passing Eton College, Mill House, Windsor Racecourse and Brocas Meadows, before turning round at Boveney Lock and Weir. Trips depart frequently throughout the day, and there is a childrens playground and picnic area at the nearby Home Park.

If you have more time to spare, take a two hour trip which ventures five miles upstream beyond Boveney Lock. Once through the lock, you glide past Sutherland Grange, The Willows, Oakley Court, Bray Film Studios, Queen’s Eyot and Monkey Island, all sites of historical interest. Embrace the quintessentially English vibe by ordering a traditional afternoon tea when you book online, light refreshments are available, and the fully licensed bar also stocks Pimms, Champagne and sparkling wine. An informative brochure is provided on both trips.
