There’s no better way to experience the iconic city of Oxford than by riverboat, and on this 2.5 Hour Scenic River Cruise, you’ll have plenty of time to take in everything this part of England has to offer. Start at The Folly, a charming riverside restaurant where you can purchase provisions for the journey. Then set sail up river to the ancient and picturesque Port Meadow, a historic area of common land. A short stop at one of Oxford’s oldest pubs, the Perch Inn, will give you a chance to stretch your legs.

Back downriver you can catch a glimpse of Oxford’s towering architecture as this delightful river cruise wends its way through the university’s regatta course. Quaint boathouses line this stretch of river and it’s a busy stretch of water, a favourite for rowers and punters.

This enchanting river cruise is a marvellous addition to a sightseeing tour of Oxford. It’s relaxing, but there’s plenty to see, from historic landmarks to native wildlife. Add it to a weekend away in the countryside or indulge yourself and a loved one on a day out. 

What's included:

  • Travel upstream to the less travelled areas of the river
  • Explore ancient Port Meadow and see the scenery that inspired many works of literature
  • Meander through Oxford city centre and its charming riverside
  • Pass through Osney Lock
  • Catch a glimpse of the University boathouses
