Rowing boats are available from our base on beautiful Port Meadow. Our boats have a capacity of up to 4 people and are perfect for a long day messing about on the river.
From our moorings you can travel through some of the most beautiful scenery on the Thames, pulling in to the bank for a picnic on ancient water meadows, or visiting the tempting waterside pubs at Binsey (The Perch), Godstow (The Trout) or Osney (The Punter). During longer trips you will reach the university boathouses and River Cherwell (downstream) or the magical Wytham Woods (upstream). On these peaceful upper reaches of the Thames you will not be troubled by large pleasure craft and may often feel that you have the river to yourself.
Our experienced staff will give basic rowing lessons if required.
For the more adventurous boats can be hired for multiple days to allow longer journeys as far upstream as Cricklade and as far downstream as Teddington in West London. Although these boats must be collected from and returned to our base in Oxford.
