Cliveden Reach is renowned as one of the prettiest spots on the Thames. Here, there's a selection of boating options that are the perfect way to spend a lazy few hours down by the river.
To see boat hiring costs please go to the information centre. Please be aware that our self-drive boats are cash only.
Boat hire is from 11.30am to 3.45pm (last boat with a 4.15pm finish).
Getting to the river
All boats leave from the riverside which is approximately a 20-30 minute walk from the Info Centre. The quickest route includes 172 steps.
By Boat Shuttle
Volunteers run a free electric boat bus from the car park to the riverside boat station and back. This service is on a first-come first-served basis and only when requested. Priority is given to those less able to follow the walking route. Please ask in the Info Centre or ask the Skipper for details. The bus will only run if the boats are running.
You can even arrive by boat on your visit to Cliveden and moor for 24 hours for just £10 (entry fee additional). Tickets from River Warden upon arrival or bookable in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Mooring at suitable locations for more than ½ mile downstream from Cliveden boathouse.
