Oxford Experience Cruise - Our Most Popular Sightseeing Tour

If your time in Oxford is limited but you still wish to experience a taste of river life this sightseeing tour is designed for you.

We take in a fascinating stretch of River as we cruise down the university regatta course towards quaint Iffley village. We pass ancient Folly Bridge, Christchurch College and Meadows and the university rowing houses. This is one of the busiest and most colourful stretches of the Thames (the stretch locally known as The Isis). Rowing eights, punts, university boats and large pleasure cruisers come together in a lively display of all that the river has to offer.

The River Experience Cruise costs £12 per person and £6 for children under 16.

Special Offer - Book online today for just £9 per person

The cruise departs from our moorings at The Folly, Folly Bridge, Oxford,

OX1 4LB. The cruise lasts approximately 50 minutes and departs regularly throughout the day.

Due to the popularity of this cruise and limited capacity we strongly recommend booking in advance.

This cruise operates between April and October.



Golden Slumbers at The Folly Restaurant

"What a beautiful peaceful trip, just gliding up the river with a glass of wine in one hand.... watching the swans and herons while the cows wade in the soft mud to cool themselves on a hot, lazy afternoon - a feeling of timelessness comes over you. Who cares about the stresses of the world! Just messing about in a boat is all you need ... A day to keep forever in your memory!"
Pamela McCartney, Australia
