mapledurham house

Take A Guided Tour Of The House, Meander Around The Gardens, Learn About The Working Watermill And Take A Break In The Tea Rooms.

Mapledurham Estate is noted in the Domesday Book and is one of the best kept traditional riverside estates on The Thames. Cruise from Caversham Pier and travel to another world as we dock on the private landing stage in the mill stream.

The more adventurous may like to take a hike on The Thames Path (which is more strenuous than it may sound). We will drop you off at the Mapledurham landing stage around 1445 and return to collect passengers at 1700.

This service is only available on a Sunday. The ticket prices include a landing fee of £2 per person which gives you access to the grounds of the house. The landing feed can be redeemed against the entry fee to the house. Entry to the  house is an additional charge which is payable to the Mapledurham Estate.
