Boat trip to Sandford or Abingdon (half-day)
Take a Salter’s Steamer from Folly Bridge to Sandford (40 minutes each way) or Abingdon (two hours each way) and see Oxford from the river.
You will pass Christchurch Meadows and the College Boathouses where, during University term-time, you may see the eights and scullers practising their rowing.
You will see some of the beautiful English countryside which inspired Lewis Carroll to write stories about Wonderland for a little girl called Alice and her sisters. You will also pass through some of the beautifully maintained locks that enable pleasure craft, punts and Steamers to navigate the River Thames from Lechlade to London.
Cruises depart at various times during the day, morning and afternoon, between May and September, and may be taken one-way or return. Please visit the Salter’s Steamers Website for further information, or telephone: 01865 243421
