We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on the boat. Great value for money with an informative pilot, who took us to all the main spots on the river; boathouses the island etc.

We had a lovely relaxing evening with a cream tea picnic and amusing commentary, whilst meandering along the river Thames. The food was delicious and even though it drizzled a little, the evening was wonderful

It was a truly lovely experience. The boat trip was so relaxing and Chris was a great host. The meal at the Folly was delicious and I even managed to hand feed a swan (probably not advisable)… We will definitely be back again.

I don't think it makes much difference. I suppose it depends on what you want to do for the rest of the day and how far you have to travel. The car park is a little way from the venue but it is all flat so take your time... More
