Why not explore the local area in style with a leisurely cruise down our tranquil stretch of the River Thames. Whether you choose to skipper your own vessel or sit back and relax while an experienced captain guides you along, there are few better ways to make the most of your time at The Oakley Court.


A selection of four luxury river cruisers can be hired via the hotel to experience the scenic beauty of the river in style!

Each vessel has its own unique style and is skippered by a professional driver allowing you to sit back, relax and enjoy the sights.

With capacities for up to 12 guests, a private river cruise is perfect for any occasion from birthdays to corporate drinks receptions or even a romantic trip for two.

We can even provide hampers and drinks (must be pre-booked) to ensure you have all you need for a truly luxurious outing.
