The English river cruise from The River Cruise Line is along the Thames, in the south of England. The Thames is probably best known for its lower reaches, which flow through the city of London, but it also flows through eight other counties and 17 towns and cities on its journey from Thames Head, Gloucestershire. Our cruise reveals the lesser-known parts around Oxfordshire and Berkshire, which were the inspiration for Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows, a classic piece of children’s literature telling the story of Toad, Ratty, Mole and Badger and their adventures along the riverbank.

Our late availability page contains special offers that pop up intermittently. It all depends on where some space opens up on one of our river cruise ships. Our river cruise in England may appear on this page — so make sure you keep an eye on it. And you can learn more about our cruise experience if you’re still trying to make up your mind.
