There are ten boats in the fleet ranging from 2 berth up to 12 berth, offering a range of facilities and each with a character of its own. All are named after the University colleges in Oxford and are painted Oxford blue.
More than 12 people? You need two boats! Please call us to discuss.
When Elizabeth contacted us in July wanting a boat for her and her 5 grandchildren, we were very happy to set them up aboard Brasenose, which is a fabulous boat for larger parties – up to 12 people!
We’re pleased to say that, after discussions with the Canal and River Trust, we are now able to accept bookings for holidays and short breaks from 4th July 2020 onwards.
If you’re missing the canal as much as we are, you might enjoy this short virtual view of a trip up the Oxford Canal.
