The River Thames

The stretch of the Thames at Wallingford is one of the most beautiful in the country. Explore by boat either hiring your own at Benson or on an organised boat trip from the Riverside Park. Alternatively, for the more energetic, you could walk the Thames Path. Riverside Park is the perfect venue for you to enjoy a picnic, the outdoor heated swimming pool and the paddling pool.

Salter’s Steamers run boat trips from Wallingford to Abingdon and Reading during the summer months. To find out more and view a timetable, visit the Salter’s Steamers website.
