Sail on the Thames with Salters

 

Latest news is that the Reading - Goring - Wallingford and Wallingford - Abingdon services will resume in July 2018 and run for a period of five weeks.  Use the bus to connect with the Steamers - or you can go one way by bus and come back on the steamer, or vice versa.  See the Salters Steamers website for full details of their services and fares

Why not get the steamer to Beale Park and come back on the bus - or vice versa!

 

Wallingford to Reading Service

NEW: BUY TWO ADULT RETURN TICKETS GET ONE CHILD RETURN FREE


Subject to weather and boat availability, please check with the Oxford office on (01865) 243421 before making a special journey.

At present this Service will be running on our Passenger Vessel Jean Marguerite. Photos can be viewed on the 'Gallery' section of our website.

Salters have been operating from Wallingford since 1888 and this service is the longest of our scheduled cruises (15 miles of glorious Thames scenery). Highlights of the cruise include a number of famous waterside restaurants (including the Beetle and Wedge at Moulsford and the Swan at Streatley), striking private housing at both Pangbourne and Caversham as well as the popular tourist attractions of Beale Wildlife park and the splendid Mapledurham House (with 15th century mill).

Beale Park is now accesible by Salters Steamer. What better way to get to the Wildlife Park than arriving by River!
