About

Caversham, Sonning and Shiplake with cream tea.

The Shiplake reach, downstream from Reading is a somewhat hidden untouched reach of the Thames being away from roads and people. Departing from Caversham Pier with your own reserved table and steward on-board we will sail through Caversham Lock and leave the busy town behind us entering stunning and tranquil Thames countryside as cream tea is served.

The trip

Picture postcard vistas, riverside villages and a unique bridge.

The round-trip cruise will pass through Sonning Lock and under Sonning Bridge (a real gem of a photo opportunity on the way back upstream) before winding it's way through the Shiplake reach. Meandering around twists and turns, passing islands, riverside homes, rowing clubs and open country, this is perhaps our most intriguing Thames journey. The steward and crew will serve cream tea which includes scones, Cornish clotted cream and jam*. Don't feel compelled to stay inside, take the air on the foredeck or snap away with your camera out the window.

*Our scones are baked fresh in an artisan bakery where nuts may be present thus we can not be 100% sure that no contact with nuts has taken place. If you would like vegan tea (alternative scones and cream) please indicate when purchasing tickets.
