Romantic River Tour

Romantic River Tour


Water Lane,


Take a romantic river tour with your loved one. It’s the perfect first date. Or second date. Or third. The River Stour provides a beautiful setting for an unusual romantic birthday or anniversary gift. Enjoy it’s meandering path as you snuggle up in our cosy tartan blankets and enjoy some refreshments. Listen to our chauffeur’s commentary of the picturesque scenery, or whisper sweet nothings to each other as the sights go by.

You can enjoy a romantic tour in cold weather as we provide hot water bottles, and even a canopy in case of rain. Though it is possible to do the romantic tour at anytime of day, w recommend going after 6pm to insure a secluded river and ideally darkness to create the perfect atmosphere. Bookings after 5pm require advanced booking, because it is out of normal working hours.

The cost of the romantic tour is £50

For another £20 receive a violin solo on your return played from our private bridge illuminated by a single candle. This is the perfect opportunity for marriage proposals as it is extremely atmospheric. The Violinist is subject to availability so very advanced bookings are recommended.
