Established in 1898, Avon Boating is one of England's oldest and largest traditional boating companies, offering boats for hire on one of the finest rivers in the country, the Avon at Stratford-upon-Avon.
It operates a fleet of classic Edwardian passenger vessels on regular public cruises from the Bancroft Gardens next to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and offers a variety of private cruises for groups.
From the old boathouse on the edge of the river bank, it hires out rowing boats, punts, and self-drive motor boats for those wanting to explore the further reaches of the river independently.
There are also two large eight seater canoes - ideal for large families or groups of friends - which are easy to paddle and everyone can have a go. It's fantastic fun and not available anywhere else in the UK.
Alternatively, why not experience a little bit of Venice in Shakespeare's England, and book a romantic gondola ride?
New for 2016 is the Moorhen - a six person motorboat available for advanced hourly bookings at just £40 per hour plus a £50 refundable deposit.
We invite you to relax and enjoy the town's iconic riverside setting and the tranquil waters of the Avon by boat, as the customers of Avon Boating have done for over 100 years.
