Set sail for a relaxing afternoon of sightseeing in historic Oxford. You’ll leisurely cruise down the Thames from Folly Bridge taking in some of the city’s finest offerings as you go. A vibrant and often bustling section of the river, you’ll travel down the University Regatta Course, passing Christ Church Meadows, the University College Boat Houses and many other places of interest on your way to Iffley Lock. Having navigated through the lock, you’ll drift along the tranquil water meadows surrounding Oxford, before turning home at Rose Island, a favourite destination of Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell.
