Activities on The River Thames

The River Thames provides a great playground for those keen to enjoy outdoor activities whether for an activity day or an activity break.

As well as the numerous boating opportunities there are plenty of ways to participate for a small group of family or friends to larger special events.

These are generally tailored by an event organiser or offered through a venue such as Dorney Lake and can be on the water or land-based. What better setting than Dorney Lake which was a London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games venue.

Ideas for Activities:

  • Dragon Boat Racing
  • Raft Building
  • Orienteering
  • Archery
  • Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting
  • Rowing Experiences
  • Scavenger Challenges in Henley-on-Thames, Marlow, Cookham or Windsor & Eton
  • These are great ideas for Hen or Stag parties as well and can be combined with stays at some of the riverside hotels.
