Departing from Folly Bridge you will pass Christchurch College and the University Boathouses on your way to Osney Island, Port Meadow and beyond to Godstow, whose scenery inspired some of the literary work of C.S.

Cruise and Pubs
21 August 2019
Thoroughly enjoyable cruise with a couple of pub stops. Nick, our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and had a few little stories to go with his knowledge. The Perch Inn was a beautiful old pub with great beer too. No rush to drink it either. If you haven’t finished you can take it back on the boat with you. The picnic was excellent too. Finger sandwiches, quiche and scones to die for. Overall an excellent way to spend a few hours.

Lovely Day Out
24 November 2015
This was a lovely experience from beginning to end. The trip is aboard a quaint 10 seater river boat departing from a pretty riverside restaurant - where you wait before boarding. The route was brought to life by a charming and informative skipper whom it was a pleasure to send a couple of hours with. Enjoyable picnic served and we purchased wine at the reception to take with us. Very much recommended.
