Type: Boat Trip

A visit to Windsor is not complete without a boat trip on the Thames with French Brothers. With unique views of Windsor Castle as well as Eton College the 40 minute or 2 hour return trips should be on every visitors “to do” list.

Alternatively you may choose to join one of the scheduled sailings from Maidenhead or Runnymede that transport you to Windsor allowing you to arrive in style.  Visit our website for further information on private charters for birthdays, weddings and any other reason including special events such as Henley Regatta & festival, Windsor races & Swan Upping.

Special event cruises
Choose from Sunday Lunch, Steamboat Tea, Historic Steamboat, Autumn Colours, Bird & Wildlife and Waves of Laughter

Travel to Windsor Racecourse by boat
French Brothers are proud to be associated with . On race meeting days at Royal Windsor Racecourse we offer a regular service to and from Windsor Racecourse from Windsor Promenade, which is close to the town centre and the railway stations.All boats are weatherproof and have fully stocked bars on board. Boats departing for Windsor Racecourse start running 2 hours before the first race up until the beginning of the second race.

Hire a Victorian Steam Boat for your special event
S.L. Nuneham and S.L. Streatley are beautiful traditional, luxury 100 year old genuine coal fired steam boats, built in 1898 and 1905 respectively.

Groups should not miss out on the opportunity to visit Runnymede in 2016 as the World continues to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta. Why not embark on a special trip providing commentary pointing out the sights along with interesting historical facts.

 

Public trips are available from Windsor - Runnymede - Maidenhead - Staines - Chertsey - Hampton Court.
