We are delighted to be working in partnership with Hobbs of Henley this year, a family business whose working knowledge of The Thames goes back five generations and 144 years!
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. This is a truly unique experience and perfect for Henley Royal Regatta, Henley Music & Arts Festival, Rewind Festival, Corporate Entertaining and any other excuse for a celebration!
