Best to go on a warm day but you have to book normally in advance and the weather can not always comply ! but thats England for you ,trip long enough and if you book lunch at the Swan it makes a pleasant day out

Lovely boat trip with brilliant views. Had a great volunteer (Alan Ryan) who answered all questions, engaged in conversations, provided information and even cracked a few jokes. Altogether it was a nice trip.
