Boating

Rowing at Cliveden Reach on the River Thames.

Cliveden Reach is renowned as one of the prettiest spots on the Thames. The 2019 season has now come to an end and the boating offer is under review. More information will be released in the new year about the launch in spring.

Getting to the river

By walking

Pick up a map upon your arrival and head to Yew Tree Steps to head down to the river.  Alternatively, for a step-free route, please use Spring Drive.

By boat

Mooring spaces are available downstream from Spring Cottage and also on two of our four islands. 

To help us look after Cliveden and its riverfront, mooring fees do apply. Our River Custodians will be on hand to welcome you, collect the fee and answer any questions.
