An enjoyable 40 minute boat trip along the Thames River in Windsor. The commentray was vert informative and we learnt some facts about the area we didn't know. Refreshments are available on board. It was spoilt a bit by a large family with many children who were very unruly climbing everywhere and kicking the chairs there were others in board... More

My family and I visited Windsor and Eton today and took a mini cruise from Windsor to Bray. Passing lots of places of interest. The staff on board are friendly and the commentary was informative. The only downfall was that my 6 year old got bored after about an hour. The drinks on board are high but are in keeping... More

After booking the Runnymede to Windsor (Maga Carta 2015) cruise earlier this year, we set a date in August to meet up with my partners sister and husband What a tremendous day we had. Arriving in good time, parking is easy and they give you a ticket to put in the car so you don't need to pay more.The boat... More

I do not have sea legs even on rivers but thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The young lady taking tickets was polite also coming round to offer refreshments. There was a running commentary which was good. Would definitely do the longer trip next time

The boat was expertly handled. the crew very friendly and helpful. Drinks were served on board and the commentary was most interesting. Even though the weather was awful we still had a... More

My husband and I had no idea what to do with our two young children on Monday in the pouring rain and thought we might try a boat trip - outside in the fresh air but a bit sheltered. So off we went to Runnymede on the off chance. It was awful weather when we arrived but the crew of... More

A private party on board from Runnymede to Windsor and back. A great celebration and opportunity to catch up with friends and family let down by surely crew members. Out of the two ladies on the bar one was completely disinterested verging on rude. The bar was often only manned by one person often resulting in a long queues and... More

Boat left Runnymede promptly at 11am and after a useful commentary on the landmarks and Magna Carta we headed to Windsor. Peaceful and scenic. Had 3 hours to wander around Windsor and back on the boat for 4pm. The cream tea hamper served on the return journey was better than expected with fresh sandwiches, delicious, large scones with butter, cream... More
