See the unique beauty of Oxford and enjoy the much-loved British tradition of afternoon tea with this wonderful cruise, sailing along a particularly stunning section of the River Thames.

Beginning at the picturesque Folly Bridge, board the private boat and take a seat on board. The boat has a 12 person capacity, making the cruise a truly intimate and special experience.

Sail along the University Regatta Course, past Christ Church Meadows and the University College Boat Houses, towards Iffley Lock. Once past the busy, vibrant lock, the gorgeous scenery of Oxford opens up. See wildlife, ancient water meadows, interesting buildings and beautiful English landscape. Sail past the fantastic Rose Island, a favourite location of Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell

On board, tuck into a sumptuous afternoon tea spread, provided by local riverside restaurant The Folly. As you cruise along the sparkling River Thames, sip speciality tea and dine on delicate finger sandwiches, homemade scones with jam and clotted cream, fresh strawberries and a delicious selection of cakes, tarts and petit fours.
