Day Boat Hire
pleasures of boating on the Royal River Thames
Travelling upstream, a day's cruising from Datchet will bring you to towns such as Royal Windsor and, on the opposite bank, Eton; then the pretty 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.
