Relax and enjoy life in the slow lane, cruising the River Thames between Oxford and Kingston on a bespoke boating break that's uniquely tailored especially to you.

The roomy 60' by 12' Art Deco Barge, expertly designed and crafted in 2014, is home to her owners Dave and Joyce, who will also be your welcoming and knowledgeable hosts during your break.  As Art Deco is their permanent home, you'll find it exceptionally well-equipped, featuring all the necessary creature comforts, together with a unique helping of personal and friendly service.

Dave and Joyce understand all too well just how busy and stressful life can get in the fast lane, and are now keen to share all the enjoyment of their relaxed and carefree water-based lifestyle as they cruise the River Thames from historic Kingston to culture-steeped Oxford, 90 luxurious miles in total and passing through exceptionally scenic towns and villages along the way including Henley, Windsor and Marlow to name a few...not forgetting Hampton Court and Runnymede.

With everything provided - including your meals - all that's left for you to do is simply sit back and enjoy the ever-changing scenery as you glide by, from picturesque villages full of lush greenery and open parkland, to grand Royal residences. 

You'll encounter many friendly faces along your way, from riverside wildlife to the lock keepers - and there'll be plenty of time to disembark for a while and take a stroll through bustling market towns, visit historic landmarks and absorb plenty of culture and tradition. 

Things to note 

Art Deco Barge only takes maximum two guests at any one time, ensuring privacy and exclusivity, costs include breakfast, lunch, 3-course evening dinner and cruising. The cost is the same at any point in the season, which runs from Easter to October (occasional bookings taken outside this period, enquire directly). Alcohol may be brought on board. Cruising schedules are based on a 'flexible itinerary' arrangement tailored to your location. Marker on map is general location only as this is a cruising holiday.
