Lunchtime Oxford Picnic Cruise for Two
This scenic River Thames cruise provides a unique and stunning perspective of Oxford City and the surrounding areas. After boarding a river cruiser, head downstream passing the university regatta course, ancient Folly Bridge, Christchurch College and Meadows, as well as the university rowing houses. This particular stretch of the river which is locally known as the Isis, is both vibrant and busy - dotted with punts, pleasure boats, punts and rowing eights. Whilst on board, both tuck into a delicious picnic and a soft drink (ginger beer or elderflower presse). Alcoholic drinks can be purchased at the departure point to take aboard. This experience is a perfect way to relax and take in some seriously beautiful sights.
