Kingston upon Thames to Henley (6 nights) Wednesday 25 September 2019

Windsor Castle

This six night cruise takes you a delightful journey and sightseeing trip on the Thames from the vibrant Surrey market town of Kingston Upon Thames a stone’s throw from central London, to the beautiful historic town of Henley on Thames, most famous for holding the world’s greatest rowing regatta.

The Thames between Kingston and Henley offers a wealth of stunning scenery, wildlife, historic buildings and impressive waterway architecture, with much to see and appreciate throughout the cruise. For the avid walker, the Thames Path follows the river along the entire length of the cruise, so cruisers wishing to experience part of the route from the shore can stretch their legs between stops without losing sight of the boat

Leaving Kingston, we take a pleasant cruise upstream to the visitor moorings at Hampton Court, on the doorstep of the historic Royal Palace and gardens. This is a stunning location and provides the perfect opportunity for guests to visit Hampton with ample time to explore the spectacular Palace and grounds.

Our visit over, we cruise on through Sunbury, Walton and Shepperton, home of the famous Shepperton Film Studios, to reach Weybridge where the river Wey meets the Thames. Below the lock the last remaining ferry on the non-tidal Thames joins the Thames Path for walkers where it crosses the river.

From here the river twists and turns through Chertsey, Staines and Egham to reach Runnymede, home of the Magna Carta Memorial, RAF Memorial and Kennedy Memorial, all a short walk from the riverbank.

The splendid and historic town of Windsor is a short cruise from Runnymede through Old Windsor. A visit stop here allows ample time to explore the delights of Windsor and Eton, including the Queens favourite home Windsor Castle, Windsor Great Park and Eton College to name but a few.

Leaving Windsor and its magnificent castle behind, we begin our journey towards Henley with a gentle cruise past the Windsor race course and Eton Dorney Olympic rowing lake to the village of Bray with its wealth of fine waterfront properties and Michelin starred restaurants. A little further upstream Bray’s neighbour Maidenhead is a large town hugging the riverbank popular with shoppers and diners.  One of the town’s most famous features is Brunel’s Sounding Arch Bridge which carries the railway line over the Thames.  When it was built, the bridge, featured in Turner’s painting ‘Rain, Steam and Speed’ was the widest flattest arch bridge in the world.

Beyond Maidenhead we cruise through Cliveden Deep, arguably one of the most picturesque stretches of the Thames, overlooked by Clivedon House high in the trees above the river. From here the channel passes Cookham and Bourne End as it twists and turns upstream to the charming Georgian town of Marlow with its impressive suspension bridge over the Thames.

Upstream of Marlow we follow the river as it meanders gently through scenic countryside passing the splendid Medmenham Abbey near Hurley to Hambledon on the outskirts of Henley. Heading into Henley we cruise the length of the Regatta course, where we are very likely to encounter crews of rowers from Henley’s numerous rowing clubs out training. Henley is a 12th century market town on the banks of the Thames, a charming town with over 300 buildings designated as being of special architectural or historical interest. We aim to arrive in time to allow for guests to explore the town and visit the Henley River and Rowing Museum before spending the final night of the cruise on board.
