Historic Steamboat Cruise

Join us for an amazing nostalgic cruise of discovery through the Queen's back garden. This fantastic cruise is on board one of our beautiful and genuine Victorian steam launches.

Departing from Runnymede in the morning you will pass though Old Windsor Lock and the pretty village of Datchet. Salute our Monarch's flag and tuck into the delicious ploughman's lunch as we steam along past the grounds of Windsor Castle.

In the afternoon you can enjoy a traditional afternoon cream tea as the boat returns to Runnymede.

For all steam enthusiasts. Choose either of the single journeys or both for a full return trip. Groups of over 40 have the option to select a their own date.
