About

Kris Cruisers operates a fleet of fully equipped luxury holiday boats on the River Thames with boats sleeping between 2 and 10 people. We are members of the Visit England Grading Scheme and all of our boats have been awarded either 4 or 5 stars. They are available for hire from as little as a 3 or 4 night short break to one week or more. You can explore the whole 124 mile length of the River Thames starting from Teddington, passing through the infamous Henley and Oxford towns right up to Lechlade in Gloucestershire. Boating holidays have never been so good.

Day Hire: Boats seating from 2 to 12 people, both Diesel and Electric powered, during a day's cruise from Datchet, you will pass through towns such as Royal Windsor and, on the opposite bank, Eton; you will then cruise past Windsor Race Course before passing the village of Bray and a little way farther on Maidenhead with its memories of Edwardian punting heydays.

At the limit of your cruising range are Boulter's Lock and the beech-wooded heights of Cliveden. Throughout the greater part of your trip the Round Tower of Windsor Castle remains a still and familiar landmark. Downstream will bring you to historic Runnymede with its many associations - Magna Carta, the memorial to President Kennedy and, atop Cooper's Hill, the one to the Commonwealth Air Forces. The River winds on past the London Stone marking the former limit of jurisdiction of the City of London, down to the busy town of Staines and then on to Laleham where riverside homes and bungalows front the meadows which once surrounded Laleham Abbey.

Whether you have a week, a day or just a few hours, relax, unwind and discover the hidden treasures of the River Thames with Kris Cruisers Self Drive Boat Holidays and Day Boat Hire.

Prices start at
£28 per hour to £118 per day.
£500 per short break and £715 per week.
