Reasons for trip

This boat rip is run by French Brothers and takes you from Windsor to Boveney and back. We had a 40 min trip on a gloomy Thursday afternoon.

The boat has two levels – the lower deck is completely covered but with large windows. The toilets and bar are on this level. The upper deck has a roof and open sides (with plastic sides which can be rolled down if necessary). The boat leaves from the river close to the castle and also offers 2 hour trips.

There is a clear, informative pre-recorded commentary and the boat travels through fields, under bridges, past the racecourse and up to a lock where it turns round to return. Various hot and cold drinks, wine etc are brought round to those who wish to purchase them. The staff were very happy to answer questions about the river and the places we saw. We enjoyed our trip despite the fact that it started to pour with rain soon after we left.

The cost for Seniors was £5.20 each.
