Since it was established in 1974, Thames Rivercruise has become the place to go to when looking for a venue with a difference. Not only do they offer you a choice of three beautiful boat cruises, they also cater for any occasion and provide onboard entertainment. So you can cruise the Upper Thames in style, whether it be with family, friends or work colleagues.

The boat tours operate between Wallingford and Henley. One of the scheduled boat tours takes you to the famous, old, tranquil Mapledurham House and Watermill. Visitors can enter the house and also discover the watermill, which is the only mill on the Thames that’s still working. The other scheduled trip is a round trip that departs from the Thameside Promenade. Here you can choose between a scenic 30 minute trip or a longer 80 minute trip.

Essential Travel is giving away a family day out for 2 adults and 2 children on any 30 minute or 80 minute scheduled boat tour from Caversham. Don’t miss this great opportunity for a fantastic family outing this summer!
