Beautiful Oxford, the city of dreaming spires is perhaps best seen from the river. The stretch of the Thames you’ll see on this fascinating cruise is known as “The Isis” and takes in the University Regatta course, historic Folly Bridge, and Christchurch College - one of the largest of the Oxford University colleges - with its impressive cathedral and meadows. You’ll also see the Oxford boat houses, where the new generation of athletic students prepare for the famous Boat Race, and peaceful, quaint Iffley Village. On any one day you may share the river with rowing eights, large pleasure cruisers, and students or tourists messing about on punts! This most lively stretch of the river provides many opportunities for people-watching, as well as majestic architecture, and sights of fascinating historic significance.

Afternoon tea selection was wonderful and the boat trip was lovely on a small boat which in my opinion was better than being on a large one with crowds of people!!

My daughter purchased this trip as a Mothers Day present for me. I loved the fact there was a bar/restaurant area where we embarked, very pleasant. The cruise took us along a lovely stretch of the Thames which was full of history. Excellent talk by the skipper.

A beautiful day spent in Oxford. A small boat for twelve although there were only four of us that day. Excellent skipper, cruise up the Thames. Fantastic value for money. Delicious coffees at The Folly before departure. Could not have wished for a better 'Buy a Gift Experience' would recommend to anyone.

Lovely trip down the river in a boat (with rugs for when it got a little chilly!). Very well informed skipper who was able to provide lots of information on a range of landmarks that we past and history of the area.

Oxford River Exerience

Given to me as a birthday gift, the trip to Oxford made a lovely day out for my husband and I. Having stayed for the night in Oxford we were on hand to walk to the Folly Restaurant where we could enjoy a leisurely coffee before boarding the boat. We had managed to choose a beautiful day weatherwise, which enhanced the whole experience. The skipper had a lovely dry sense of humour and kept us entertained with interesting facts about Oxford as we cruised gently along. The only snag - the hour seemed to go too fast. Back at the Folly we finished the excursion by staying at the Restaurant for a delicious lunch. All in all, a very good day out which I would be happy to recommend.
What would you improve for next time? Being lucky with the weather, thee was little we could improve on.
