Thames boat cruise
An experience you will treasure!
If you’d like to explore Britain’s most historic river or just relax and let the world drift by there’s no better way to start than with Hobbs. Based in the beautiful riverside market town of Henley-on-Thames and just 40 miles away from London (around an hour by train), you can experience your very own self-driven boat with our boat hire or enjoy a public cruise or private charter.
As you approach Windsor, either by road or rail, you can’t fail to be impressed by the sheer size and scale of Windsor Castlestanding majestically on the hill, punctuating the skyline – it’s the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world, The Queen’s favourite weekend home and the jewel in the Royal Borough’s crown.
The castle is open year round even when The Queen is in residence but as it’s a working palace it closes for special private events and functions so always check in advance before making a special journey.
How about taking to the water and viewing Windsor and the Royal Borough from the peace and tranquillity of the River Thames?
20 miles of this beautiful and historic waterway meanders through the Royal Borough, between Hurley and Runnymede, and there are villages and attractions waiting to be discovered such as the Stanley Spencer Gallery in Cookham.
Enjoy a passenger boat ride with French Brothers Boats, hire a rowing boat or motor boat with John Logie, celebrate a special occasion with Private Boat Hire Ltd, Hobbs of Henley or Kris Cruisers or take a guided kayak tour with London Kayak Tours.
