Enjoy an inspiring family journey along the Thames and the Oxford countryside with this breathtaking cruise
The gorgeous banks of the Oxford countryside provide the backdrop for this serene and beautiful cruise along the Thames, following the route originally taken by Lewis Carroll which inspired his masterpiece 'Alice in Wonderland'. The breathtaking Oxfordshire landscape is sure to relax and restore, as well as provide plenty of opportunities for photos whilst you gently drift along in a stunningly furnished river boat.
Your enchanting cruise experience departs Folly Bridge at 12.30pm. Among the many breathtaking sites you will see Quaint Osney Island, well-loved allotments and gardens and majestic and ancient Port Meadow, many 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 little changed 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 Oxfords 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.
