We are offering a hop-on-hop-off boat trip from Caversham in Reading to Goring with stops at Mapledurham Lock, Beale Park Wildlife Park and Goring (with easy access to Streatley). Join the boat for one hop, two hops, three hops, a return or the entire trip. An ideal trip for walkers, cyclists or those looking for a real day on the river or just a trip to Goring for lunch. New for 2019 – New Stops Added – This year we will now call at Pangbourne Meadows near the bridge and on request at The Swan in Pangbourne (just above the weir). This means we have added an extra hop, so for those going to Goring you need 4 hops.
We have special local offers in Goring for dining. Ticket holders can obtain 10% off food at The Catherine Wheel or get a free glass of Pimms, Ice Cream or Coffee when dining at The Miller of Mansfield
