This walk and river boat trip is a wonderfully relaxed way of experiencing the Thames.

Each day you board a river boat (ticket included) and float downstream to your next destination. There you have an enviable choice for you can pull on your walking boots and enjoy the best local route we know through the surrounding countryside and along the river or you can revel in the slow pace and just potter about. Each overnight stay is a few minutes walk from the boat pier of these historic towns with riverside cafes, tempting museums and celebrated landmarks claiming your attention.

This is such a great way to discover the sights and smells of quintessential England, for the river threads its way through sleepy rural villages, pretty landscapes and through the heart of bustling historic towns such as Windsor, Richmond and London. Royalty and history beckon, whilst water meadows, old inns, wildlife and weirs lead you serenely on your meanders.
