Situated on the banks of The Thames, in the beautiful market town of Henley-on-Thames, you can enjoy either Chauffered or Self-drive "Edwardian" class launches & "Olympic" class” launches, with our very own Danesfield Flag on the mast.

Sit back and relax, sip champagne and feast on one of our picnic hampers as your cruise along The Thames, enjoying all the sites from Marlow to Sonning.
