A three hour, four lock cruise from our narrowboat hire base at Eynsham on the River Thames.

The beautiful city of Oxford is just three hours from our canal boat hire base at Eynsham on the River Thames. Your canal boat provides the perfect vehicle by which to enjoy a short break exploring all that the historic university city of Oxford has to offer. Climb the 14th century Carfax Tower to view Oxford’s ‘dreaming spires’, see the witch in a bottle at the Pitt Rivers Museum, visit the remains of the Dodo at the University Museum of Natural History, discover the real Harry Potter Hogwarts Hall at Christ Church College and stock-up on goodies in the Oxford covered market. But if that all sounds just a little too energetic, you could moor up to enjoy lunch at The Trout Inn at Wolvercote, a favourite Inspector Morse pub.

Anglo Welsh. So much more than narrowboats

...but don't just take our word for it
