Description

This delightful experience provides a memorable day out for two adults. Take a scenic riverboat cruise on the Golden Slumber, Bacchanalia or Serafina II through Oxford on one of the busiest and most colourful stretches of the Thames. Head downstream towards Iffley village, passing the ancient Folly Bridge, Christchurch College, Meadows and the university rowing houses. This stretch (locally known as The Isis) is a particularly busy stretch of the river with rowing eights, punts, university boats and large pleasure cruisers, all coming together in a lively display of all that the river has to offer.

Your experience will begin with a warm welcome aboard the vessel where you will be greeted by your skipper who will provide you with a safety briefing before departure. Throughout your scenic cruise you will receive an informal commentary as you pass by the sights of Oxford on this fascinating stretch of river.

Relaxing afternoon

Received a voucher as a birthday present and was a bit surprised that the 'activity' was 200 miles away. Booked my cruise at very short notice to coincide with a short trip to the Cotswolds, parked in the park and ride and headed for Oxford. Pleasant half hour spent in the bar/restaurant before climbing aboard the electrically powered hence quiet motor launch. Skipper was very thoughtful, provided knee blankets to ward off the cold before setting off for a leisurely amble along the river pointing out historic elements, buildings and stories about this short stretch of the river. A fascinating, interesting and relaxing afternoon.
