The Orwell is a beautiful peaceful river with rolling banks topped with large historic buildings and picturesque cottages.

Maldon’s scenic Hythe Quay is home to many of the remaining barge fleet, a picturesque setting for the start of a two hour cruise.

Cruise the Thames in style, starting in the Pool of London, just above Tower Bridge. We will have arranged for Tower Bridge to be raised especially for you. Head slowly down river past St Katherine Dock, Wapping, Canary Wharf, the National Maritime Museum, Royal Naval College and the Cutty Sark, the O2 Arena and to the Thames Barrier.
