About

Watch the century old tradition of Swan Upping

As the five day journey of the swan uppers passes through Reading we will join the rowing skiffs and watch on as this years signets are both documented and tagged being part of a tradition that goes back centuries. Three skiffs carrying the King's Swan Marker (for the crown) and the companies of the Vintners' and Dyers' will take it turns to 'claim' the signets. In a process largely unchanged for generations.

The trip

A unique vista of a Thames tradition from the water

Boarding will commence at 10.00 at Caversham Pier, from here we will slip lines and proceed to follow the skiffs of the swan uppers and offer a great raised viewing platform so you can see the full tagging process.

A full bar will be onboard with alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks available to purchase throughout the cruise. We expect to return alongside the pier at 1300.
