Take an unforgettable journey down the Thames with this stunning cruise
Take a trip along the stunning banks of the Oxford countryside and cruise down the serene and beautiful path provided by the Thames. You'll follow the route originally taken by Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell some 150 years ago which inspired Carroll's masterpiece 'Alice in Wonderland'. The breathtaking Oxfordshire scenery makes this serene cruise all the more special, whilst you gently drift along in a stunningly furnished river boat.
Your enchanting cruise experience departs Folly Bridge at 12.30pm. You'll see a variety of breathtaking sights including Quaint Osney Island, well-loved allotments, gardens and the ancient Port Meadow - all of which are off the tourist trail but represent some of Oxford's most beautiful and intriguing scenery. Port Meadow, a vast area of common land, has remained almost unchanged since prehistoric times and supports plants and bird-life in abundance. At the top of Port Meadow is Godstow.
Godstow was the ultimate destination of Alice and Lewis Carroll and is the site of their famous picnic during which Carroll created his story. Godstow is also the site of Trout Island, an inspiration for another of Oxford's literary icons, C S Lewis, and his stories of the land of Narnia. The trip also passes through Osney Lock - one of the deepest on the Thames! The whole trip will take approximately 2 and 1/2 hours.
