The River Thames

Self-drive Boat Hire on the Thames

Boating on the Thames: the most charming way to explore South-East England.

When you hire a cruiser on the Thames, you discover the famous river differently at your own pace. As you gaze at Windsor Bridge and Castle or Hampton Court Palace from your hire cruiser, you feel like you have been transported back in time. Your self-drive boat holiday takes you to large towns with shops, pubs and museums, where sightseeing and family activities are on the afternoon agenda. You’ll also stop in small villages where the pace is slow and the living is easy!
Great for... 
  • A boating break for every interest
  • Royal castles & palaces
  • Historical cities
  • Typical english countryside & villages
  • Waterside pubs
  • Walking & bird-watching
