Beyond the iconic London landmarks and the hubbub of the city, the River Thames winds its way through the beautiful countryside of England’s green and pleasant land, past historic towns and cities and quintessential English villages with their riverside pubs and immaculate village greens. This is the home of the English dream, the sound of leather striking willow, long shadows on cricket pitches and afternoon tea, picnics on the riverbank and gentle strolls through Her Majesty’s Parks. In the city, glide past the Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London, and Tower Bridge. Perhaps pay a visit to Oxford, home to scholars for over 800 years. When you need something to quench your thirst, you won’t have to look far to find a pub. A boating holiday on the Thames is the perfect way to see some of England’s most scenic and historic highlights.
