We have previously done the 40min boat trip from Windsor so this time we opted to do the two hours on "The Monarch". This was a great idea as the time flew by. During the cruise you are treated to a fascinating commentary relating to the many interesting historical items you travel past. Banks of the Thames are beautiful to... More

I chartered the SL Nuneham, a 115 year old steam driven river cruiser for 48 of my family, friends and a few business colleagues. Our cruise included the sight, smell and sound of a sweet running coal fired steam engine for the boys, an afternoon cream tea for the girls (and a few of the boys), a few glasses of... More

I had a shared birthday party on The Lady Margaret Anne cruise boat, with around 70 guests. Everything was perfect. We cruised from Staines to Windsor and back on a beautiful summer's evening. We chose the Barbecue option which was superb, as were the house wines. The captain and crew treated us like royalty. We will definitely do this again.... More

An adequate, if a little pricey, trip up to the lock and back. The 40 min cruise cost us (2 Ad, + 2 kids) about £20 which I didn't see as extortionate. The trip was fine but a live commentary would have been better. The recorded version was informative but pretty 'same old'. The boat was a but shabby and... More

I have just been on an afternoon tea cruise, with French Brothers of Windsor. The only way to describe this attraction, is fantastic. My friend booked the cruise, as his birthday celebration and it was aboard a 119 year old steam boat. We departed from Runneymede and cruised up and down the Thames for 3 hours. During this time we... More

Yesterday we spent a lovely day going by boat from Runnymede to Windsor with French Brothers. This is a regular public sailing through the summer, taking about 90 minutes each way, with a 3.5 hour stop in Windsor. The commentary provided interesting information about various features of the river including the locks and bridges and we saw a lot of... More

We recently enjoyed a private cruise on the Thames from Runnymede on the vintage steamboat SL Streatley, all gleaming teak and brass, to celebrate the 80th birthday of a very dear friend. The trip went beyond our expectations - she had started the planning in January and French Brothers, especially Chris French were immensely helpful from the start. Everything ran... More

We decided the best way to show our friends and family how happy we are in Windsor was for a boat trip along the Thames. We hired a boat for 100 people as part of our wedding and it's safe to say that everyone loved the idea and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The captain and staff looked after us all... More

We recently had a family celebration/get-together for a Golden Wedding with a boat trip from Runnymede. First impressions of the boat were that it was clean and smart and the flower decorations on board were lovely. The staff were friendly and efficient throughout. The food was delicious. The Jazz Band were the icing on the cake. To top it all,... More
