Spring is here! The latest on the River Thames Flooding

After a weekend of lovely sunshine and dry weather, we are cautiously optimistic that the River will be back to normal by the end of March. Providing it doesn’t rain again. So, thank you to everyone for NOT doing rain dances this week.

The Thames is going down here and has dropped a foot. The current is still flowing strong however and it is still a waiting game on this but fingers crossed, it will continue to go down and then the Environment Agency can then start to draw in the weirs to slow the river flow down.

Please enjoy these pictures which I took today in Henley-On-Thames. Keep thinking positive thoughts and here’s hoping we can all get out there cruising again soon.

There is no better way than taking a River Thames cruise and enjoying the weather on the River Thames. The River Thames in Oxfordshire and Berkshire has some of the most picturesque countryside. There is so much to do and see in Oxfordshire, including the Midsommer Murders trail, visiting High Clere Castle (Downton Abbey) and of course Windsor and Ascot. And next week is the Henley-On-Thames Royal Regatta, an event not to be missed!

Boat hire UK is now a popular way of exploring Britain and visiting local attractions along the way. If you have a dog, then bring him too as our narrowboat holidays and holiday cottage breaks on Boat Geanna are dog friendly holidays.

Boat cruises on Thames are popular with tourists and as a visitor attraction. Our River Cruises on Thames on boat Ginetta enable you to enjoy a chartered cruise on the Thames with your friends and family or as a corporate hospitality venue.

Instead of hiring a Regus meeting room for your business meeting, why not book boat Ginetta for your meeting room venue. Impress business clients with your own private river cruise on the Thames at extremely competitive prices.

River Thames Henley Royal Regatta on Boat Geanna

Last weekend saw loads of action at the famous Royal Regatta Henley-On-Thames. Hotel boat Geanna, winner of Channel 4 ‘Four In A Bed’,’hosted a hen party over the weekend. Spectators passing by were in for an unexpected treat when the girls hired ‘Chippendale’ arrived for the occasion!
