About

Visit Mapledurham Weir

Cruise from Caversham Pier through twists and turns to Mapledurham Lock and Weir. This is the river as it should be, tranquil and stunning in Wind in the Willows Country.

The trip

Wind in the Willows Country

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.

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.

If you have any questions or queries about our cruises, please visit our FAQS page for further information.

*Very occasionally when the river is in flood and there is an extra strong stream this cruise will cruise towards Mapledurham but may have to turn prior to the weir and lock.
