Product Description
A relaxing gift experience which will treat them both to a magical cruise on the Thames.

Travelling quietly they'll witness a wonderful natural display, the abundant birdlife, horses and cows all relaxing in the Oxfordshire countryside. The river itself is vibrant and busy with rowers, narrow boats and cruisers all adding to a rich tapestry of colour and activity.

During the cruise they will have the chance to stretch their legs in the gorgeous countryside.

Typical Programme
The experience will last for approximately 2 and a half hours. It is available between April to October.

Your journey includes a delectable gourmet picnic lunch, sourced from some of Oxford's finest caterers. Exact contents depend on the availability of the freshest produce, but you can be assured that this quintessentially British way to spend an afternoon or evening will deliver satisfaction.

On this trip you'll travel through the city past famous landmarks including Christchurch College and Meadows, the University boathouses and regatta course, the Head of the River and Folly Bridge. From the river you'll take in a side of Oxford's heritage rarely seen by visitors to the city. See well-loved allotments, gardens and majestic and ancient Port Meadow, some of Oxford's most beautiful and intriguing scenery. Port Meadow, a vast area of common land, has remained little changed since prehistoric times and supports plants and bird-life in abundance.

At the top of Port Meadow is Godstow. Godstow was the ultimate destination of Alice Liddell and Lewis Carroll when they followed an identical route to this trip while composing 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'. It is also the site of Trout Island, an inspiration for another of Oxfords literary icons, C S Lewis, and his stories of the land of Narnia. The trip also passes through Osney Lock (one of the deepest on the Thames).
