Private group river trips from Henley

Book a private two hour Thames cruise with Hobbs

Enjoy a private group river trip on Britain’s royal river - the Thames

If you're looking to book a private group river trip on the beautiful and scenic River Thames, we'll be happy to help. Our tours give your group the opportunity to discover the history, heritage and beauty of the Thames. 

Our two hour group river cruise aboard the Hibernia features a live commentary from one of our qualified and experienced Blue Badge tourist guides. The Hibernia's glass saloon section will offer your group a fabulous view whilst offering protection from the elements (otherwise known as a British summer’s day…!)

If you would like to delve further into the area’s culture and history, Hobbs of Henley is ideally situated for a further visit to the River and Rowing Museum or one of Henley’s nearby country houses such as Stonor Park or Grey’s Court. Please contact these venues directly to arrange group tours. 

An affordable event for 30 – 60 people

Our group charters are available Monday to Friday during the daytime (excluding Bank Holidays, Regatta and Festival weeks) and we can accommodate groups between 30 and 60 at a cost of £16.50 per person. If you have a smaller group, contact us for other options or check out our public trips.

To make your day even more special, why not order either a delicious tea with a selection of homemade cakes, or a tea with a selection of sandwiches at just £8.00 per person? Our fantastic catering team will be on hand to help with all the details on the day - all you have to do is turn up!

“We would like to say a big THANK YOU to James, George and the ladies who served the tea for us on the Hibernia on Wednesday afternoon.
You were all so friendly and helpful to our elderly members, and the tea was delicious”
