Cruising Notes

This ultimate route takes two weeks to complete, but includes plenty to see and do over a three week cruise. An extra licence is required when joining the Thames.
The river cruising on the Thames is superb, with all locks manned during the daytime. Visit places such as Hampton Court Palace, Windsor, Eton and Henley.

Three weeks gives time to explore The Paddington Arm which goes right up to Little Venice and London Zoo
