Float down the picturesque Oxford byways and enjoy a picnic lunch with a carafe of wine
Spend an afternoon cruising along the gorgeous banks of the Thames with this picnic boat trip. Taking in all the most-inspiring sights of Oxford town and the surrounding countryside, you can relax on the water in a charmingly outfitted cruise boat - your gourmet picnic, composed of only the freshest and best local ingredients, is the ideal addition to a serene journey down the beautiful byways of Oxfordshire's landscape. There will be the opportunity to purchase wine at the departure point if you want to treat yourself or a loved one!
Your delightful picnic cruise departs from Folly Bridge at 12.30pm. You'll travel through the city past famous landmarks including Christchurch College, the University boathouses and regatta course, the Head of the River and Folly Bridge itself. From the river you'll take in a side of Oxford's heritage rarely seen by visitors to the city: Quaint Osney Island, well-loved allotments, gardens and the ancient Port Meadow - all of which are off the tourist trail but represent some of Oxford's most beautiful and intriguing scenery. Port Meadow, a vast area of common land, has remained little changed since prehistoric times and supports plants and bird-life in abundance.

At the top of Port Meadow is Godstow. Godstow was the ultimate destination of Alice Liddell and Lewis Carroll when they followed an identical route to our trip while composing 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'. It is also the site of Trout Island, an inspiration for another of Oxfords literary icons, C S Lewis, and his stories of the land of Narnia.

Your cruise will last approximately two and a half hours. The gourmet picnic lunch you'll be treated to will be locally sourced from the finest Oxfordshire suppliers, and due to its seasonality, will vary with the time of year. You will also receive a soft drink to enjoy with your lunch. Vegetarians and other dietary restrictions will can be catered to - please mention them when booking.
Your voucher is valid for 10 months for two people. The cruise departs promptly at 12.30pm, and runs from 1st April until 31st October. There are no maximum height or weight restrictions. If inclement weather on the day you have booked prevents the cruise from taking place, all measures will be taken to try and re-book you for another date of your choice. This cruise must be booked by 5pm the day before travel. All dates are subject to availability. Wine is available to purchase at the departure point.
