Beat the crowds and take the easy route to the Rewind Festival
Unwind on the way to Rewind – travel back to the 80's on a Hobbs of Henley Thames river taxi
Hobbs of Henley are proud to be appointed river taxi providers to the Rewind Festival
once again in 2017. Our vessels will be available from 12 noon Friday 18th August to midnight Sunday 20th August to transport you from Henley Town Centre (by the bridge) to the Festival site and return.
The Thames river taxi trip takes about 15 minutes. Return tickets cost £10.00 per person with singles £6.00 and are available on the boat on the day, by cash only.
Our main departure point is by Henley Bridge, ‘Rewind River Taxi Departure Pier’ - see Hobbs site map
- but at peak times we will also operate from our ‘Chauffeured Launch’ area. Please follow the ‘Official River Taxi Service’ signs from the Railway Station and look out for the ‘Official River Taxi Service’ banners either side of the Henley Bridge (Henley Town side).
We aim to have a boat at the departure points every 15 minutes on Saturday and Sunday and every 30 minutes (on either the hour or the half hour) on Friday. At peak times we will provide more boats and do our best to get you, your big hair and your pixie boots / Frankie T shirts downriver to the site as quickly as possible.
Please be aware that unlicensed
river taxi operators may not have adequate commercial insurance or such a safety focus compared to Hobbs. With 147 years of experience we’ll get you to the site safely (just watch out for all those eye height shoulder pads…).
Rewind Festival Departure Lounge
Hobbs of Henley and the Red Lion Hotel have teamed up to offer Rewind Festival goers a stylish and unique way of beginning their trip back to the 80’s.
Food and drinks will be available to Festival goers ‘al fresco’ on the Red Lion lawn by Henley Bridge where Hobbs’ river taxis will be available to take people to and from the Rewind site – details as above. So you can wine and dine while you wait for your river taxi to the site.
