About

With the arrival this summer of the Royal Windsor steam express, transporting passengers from Waterloo to Windsor by steam train, this one-hour French Brothers river cruise for all steam enthusiasts will perfectly complement a 'Steam Dreams' rail experience. 

Join us aboard genuine Victorian and Edwardian Steam Launches 'Nuneham' and 'Streatley', both of which have been meticulously restored to their former glory and have carried none other than Her Majesty the Queen. 

Relive the golden age of steam, as we cruise from Windsor Promenade to Boveney Lock. Returning with breath-taking views of Windsor Castle, Eton College, Mill house, Windsor Racecourse and The Brocas Meadows, this cruise is the ideal excursion for steam devotees and sightseers alike. 

Listen out for the unmistakeable sound of the steam whistle as the sister ships cruise past one another on this tranquil stretch of river, steeped in history. 

You may even be lucky enough to capture a photograph of the passing steamboat with the backdrop of her Majesty's favourite home; a rare sighting that could easily have been plucked from an old history book. 

This unique trip is excellent for those who have limited time and are keen to see Windsor's historic sites.
