Cruising in England on the Royal River Thames is the
absolute height of decadence. For centuries English
monarchs have savoured the pleasures of boating on
the Thames, so why not come and try it for yourself?
Royal Palaces, private stately homes, country watermills,
the rowing Regatta at Henley, the Queen’s perfect
white swans, Eton College
and many other prestigious
venues and interesting cultural experiences await you on our
luxury hotel-barge cruises. Follow in the footsteps of royalty,
as you experience the heart of traditional England whilst floating
on your private luxury hotel.
Where is it?
The River Thames
runs between Gloucestershire in the Cotswolds, through London
to join the sea on the east coast. It has run this course for half a million years and the finest stretches of
the River Thames are enjoyed to the west of London, between Windsor and Oxford, exactly where
our two luxury hotel-barges cruise in splendour through the lush English countryside.
What are the cruises like?
On these cruises you will experience the
prettiest, lushest, most verdant scenery, from flowery meadows
dotted with grand, ancient oak trees,
to fields of ripe corn swaying in the warm breeze and gentle woodland
as you glide next to the rushy
banks and islets on your gentle journey through the heart of England. Quaint towns and villages
welcome you here and there as you moor up to explore, and the private visits to stately homes
prestigious places of learning such as Eton and Oxford Colleges,
will leave you with an authentic feel
for the very cream of English culture and heritage.
Interesting museums, traditions and customs
will be explored and revealed to you wherever you go. This is definitely a ‘must do’ cruise.
