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.
Please note that on occasion if the river is flowing with a heavy stream we may need to alter the course of our river trips. The trip length with remain unchanged but the exact route may differ.
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.
Cruises run weekends from April 4th – End of September and daily during school holidays twice daily at 1100 hrs and 1400hrs.
We are currently unable able to operate any cruises. You will not be able to make a reservation or book tickets until we are advised that it is permitted to start river trips again. In the interim we are testing systems and layout plans on our vessels to be able to return to service as soon as possible and so we can all, once again, enjoy the stunning River Thames. Stay safe and we hope to see you soon.
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.
