Description
Location & Things to do
The breathtaking banks of the Oxford countryside provide the backdrop for this gorgeous cruise down the Thames, along the route originally taken by Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell some 150 years ago. Inspiring Carrolls masterpiece "Alice in Wonderland", the serene Oxfordshire landscape is sure to relax you, and provide plenty of opportunities for photos, whilst you gently drift along in a charming river boat.

Your enchanting cruise experience departs Folly Bridge at 12.30pm. Youll see a variety of breathtaking sights including Quaint Osney Island, well-loved allotments, gardens and the ancient Port Meadow - all of which are off the tourist trail but represent some of Oxfords most beautiful and intriguing scenery. Port Meadow, a vast area of common land, has remained almost unchanged since prehistoric times and supports plants and bird-life in abundance. At the top of Port Meadow is Godstow. Godstow was the ultimate destination of Alice and Lewis Carroll and is the site of their famous picnic during which Carroll created his story. Godstow is also the site of Trout Island, an inspiration for another of Oxfords literary icons, C S Lewis, and his stories of the land of Narnia. The trip also passes through Osney Lock - one of the deepest on the Thames! The whole trip will take approximately 2 and 1/2 hours.
