Paid for a chauffeured punt - £30 for 30mins but we were on there for around 45mins. Amelia, our chauffeur, was lovely and friendly. Informative about all the buildings and fields on the banks of the river. Let my two girls have a go at...More

On one of the rare glorious summer days this year, we found ourselves on a pedalo on the Cherwell. It was a lovely way to see a certain segment of Oxford: we headed towards the Thames, past the Botanic Gardens and St Hilda's College, and...More
