Day visitors to Windsor can choose either a short 40-minute round trip or a longer 2-hour return; both offer amazing views of the Castle. Discounted tickets can be booked online, with further discounts available for groups of 20 or more. Groups of 20+ should contact the bookings office.
There are two scheduled services offering visitors to Windsor the opportunity to take the boat and cruise to this historic town arriving in style. With regular sailings from Maidenhead and Runnymede, groups and individuals can enjoy a cruise to Windsor in the morning with the option to catch the return service in the afternoon. An additional service is available from Runnymede that travels to Hampton Court.
All of the French Brothers fleet are available for private charter. They are perfect for all milestone events such as birthday parties, anniversaries, wedding receptions and social functions. With a fleet of 16 craft including modern vessels and two genuine coal-fired steamboats they have a cruise to suit all tastes and budgets.
Corporate customers can charter a boat for an off-site dinner as part of a conference, offering a refreshing change of scenery. The River Thames is easily accessible from all of the town centre and riverside hotels.
There is an extensive programme of special events including Sunday lunch cruises and afternoon tea cruises on fantastic Victorian steam boats. These can all be booked online at www.frenchbrothers.co.uk
