Pangbourne River Trips

The Pangbourne Cruise

This river trip departs from our mooring point on Pangbourne Meadows near Pangbourne Bridge (Look out for the Boat Stop Sign). We have three sailings 12.15, 13.15 and 14.15 on selected Thursdays during the summer school holidays. This cruise will last approximately 45 minutes and gives you a chance to explore the beauty of the stretch of river from Pangbourne towards Mapledurham. This is a great chance for young and old to explore the scenery, spot wildlife and get afloat. As with all our cruises, there will be a full bar onboard.

On the way back you will get a great chance to photograph Whitchurch Toll Bridge from the water (one of only two toll bridges on the Thames and incorporating the 1902 structure after a recent upgrade to keep it in position for many years to come).
