The River Thames may take its name from the Sanskrit Tamas meaning “dark” as its waters are often dark and cloudy; another school of thought is that it is named after the Roman Tam meaning “wide” and Isis meaning water.
Bygone Boating - self drive boating holidays ON THE RIVER THAMES
We are quite probably the only company on the upper Thames hiring out classic motor cruisers. We have a Bates Star Craft, known for their style and innovation in the Industry, built in 1952. Also a broads style cruiser, built in 1965 and, new to the fleet very soon, a Moore & Sons 22ft cruiser, bulit in 1948!
Please note - we do require there to be AT LEAST one person with previous boating experience aboard to hire our boats.
