Enjoy a charming Picnic Cruise in Oxford! The renowned city of scholars is a wonderful place to explore and the chance to see the landmarks during the day or at sunset from the very different perspective of the river that runs through it, complete with a picnic lunch onboard, makes for a superb outing.
Your picnic cruise launches from a central Oxford location and you'll be in a traditional Edwardian-style boat with a full teak interior and little tables and chairs installed on deck ready for your picnic. You'll tuck into a platter with goodies such as slices of quiche, marinated chicken, salad selection and pork and egg Gala pie portions served with bread, followed by the cheese platter and scones with lashings of cream.
If you choose the sunset picnic cruise you will embark in the evening and we think it's as classically English as it gets as you glide past the Oxford University boat huts, wave at evening dog walkers on the tow path and drift past peaceful fields and meadows, all whilst being shown the local landmarks as the sun goes down.
Your picnic cruise in Oxford will last around two and half hours and you will see sights such as Christchurch College and meadows as you head upstream towards Osney and then pass below Fully Bridge, before returning to the original departure point after a serene and tranquil cruise in these energy efficient and near silent running electric river boats.
