Our most popular trip takes you to Mapledurham Lock, which feels a world away from life in Reading. Following the Thames upstream, you will see wildlife, open countryside, islands and look out towards the Berkshire Downs.
Extra sailings 12th & 13th August. 80 minute river trips depart 10am, 12 midday, 2pm and 4.15pm both Saturday and Sunday. Trips will either turn at Mapledurham House in the mill stream or alternatively in the weir stream.
The cruise will turn* at Mapledurham Lock taking a panoramic view of the weir, before cruising back downstream past Mapledurham House towards Reading. Plenty of time to relax, spot wildfowl and enjoy the Thames.
*On Sundays the cruise will turn at Mapledurham House
Cruises run weekends April-October and daily during school holidays at 1400hrs. On most Sundays there are two sailings, one at 1400hrs and one at 1615hrs please check the timetable for full details.
The Skipper and his crew were excellent, the boat was ideal, the timing was perfect and the food was served with a smile.
A big thank you to you, the crew and the captain for our great day out on the river…The food was wonderful, a very informative talk, and a sunny day! We all loved it.
I loved every minute of it, the commentary was really interesting and can't wait to go again.
