A trip out on an Edwardian Launch was amazing. Weather made it brilliant. Kids loved it and saw some beautiful sites



  • Unfortunately, the Edwardians do not have a toilet onboard, however there are plenty of locations you can stop at along the way. We also have toilet facilities at our main site before you depart.

  • Yes all the Edwardians have a table near the rear of the boat suitable for a small lunch buffet.

  • Unfortunately, these boats are only available to hire for the full day and must be booked online here.

  • Yes of course! We just ask you remove your rubbish at the end of the hire, bins are provided back at the boatyard.

  • Yes, all customers have access to buoyancy aids before their departure. A staff member will show you where to access these before you head off. Buoyancy aids are included in the price of the hire of the boat.

  • They are indeed. The sides can be removed to let the sun pour in on the many lovely days we experience on The Thames at Henley.

  • A £250 security deposit is required before departure. This is refunded if the boat is back by 5pm, returned clean and tidy with all rubbish removed. The deposit is non-refundable if a rope is left in the water and gets caught around the propeller, or for gross negligence resulting in an accident.

  • Absolutely! You can hire an Edwardian class launch with a skipper for up to 12 guests. You are welcome to book by both the hour and the day.
