After your walking tour of the city why not take a relaxing boat trip on one of Oxford’s rivers?
- Boat trip to Sandford or Abingdon (half-day). Take a Salter’s Steamer from Folly Bridge to Sandford (40 minutes each way) or Abingdon (two hours each way) and see Oxford from the river. You will pass Christchurch Meadows and the College Boathouses where, during University term-time, you may see the eights and scullers practising their rowing. You will also see the beautiful English countryside which inspired Lewis Carroll to write stories about Wonderland for a little girl called Alice and her sisters.
- By Punt. Try your hand at this curious form of boating which is particular to Oxford and Cambridge by hiring a punt and taking a trip down the River Cherwell. You will pass the University Parks and the gardens of several of the Colleges. You can take a picnic and stop to eat on the banks of the river or you can hire the punt for a whole day and punt down to a typical English Pub – the Victoria Arms – for lunch. Bottles of champagne and towels are advisable!
- Chauffeured Punts. An option for the slightly more cautious: Hire a punt which is chauffeured by an expert puntsman, sit back, relax and enjoy the landscape while you sip a glass of wine.
- Punting and Lunch or Dinner at the Cherwell Boat House. A very pleasant way to spend an evening. Hire a punt from the Cherwell Boat House (5 minutes from City Center) and spend one hour punting before having lunch or dinner at the delightful and extremely popular Cherwell Boat House restaurant overlooking the river.
