Info & Boat Features

The start point for wonderful cruising is the River Ouse at Ely – a delightful, historic city, renowned for its magnificent cathedral and as the setting for Oliver Cromwell's house. Heading south onto the River Cam, your cruise will take you to Wicken Fen, a wildlife haven where you can follow mown paths and nature trails in 700 acres of wetland nature reserve.

Don't miss the chance to explore Cambridge on your boating holiday – moor up and discover all that this fascinating city has to offer. Wander round the ancient university buildings (you might be lucky enough to catch choir practice in King's College Chapel), visit the Fitzwilliam Museum and stroll along the banks of the Cam behind the famous ‘Backs' of the colleges, then relax in one of the city's many excellent cafés and restaurants.
