The perfect cruise for those interested in English society and lifestyle, this vessel is operated by the congenial Captain Dominic Read, who lives along the route. Ask him to take you to his local pub!
The British immersion begins with a lavish ‘English Cream Tea’ at the gorgeous Stafford Hotel in central London, while memorable sightseeing at Windsor Castle and Oxford College augment the cruise’s historical explorations. Visits to private manor homes, expansive gardens, and charming villages further reveal England’s many cultural treasures. Public areas on the barge are comfortable and cozy, with an inviting salon and lovely dining area. Cuisine focuses on traditional English dishes prepared in modern ways, with an emphasis on creative presentation and moderate portions. Perhaps enjoy afternoon cocktails on the boat’s large deck – or even while lazing in the hot tub! Four well-appointed cabins at 200 square feet, three with a choice of King or Twin beds, one with Queen bed. The services of the barge include round trip chauffeured transfers to/ from a designated pickup hotel in London.
