Activity Highlights

Messing around on the water with a group of your best mates is a great way to spend some of your precious hen weekend hours. We can help you hire a punt, chauffeured or self-drive, so you can amble along the river! This wonderful activity is definitely best enjoyed in the warmer months!

  • Arrive at the punt station at your arranged time, we can always help with the transfers to and from the punting station
  • The experts on site will then take you through the basics of what to do and off you go!
  • Dress code: definitely something you don’t mind getting water on, flat shoes like trainers and something warm for cooler days
  • Don’t let the wet weather stop your plans as most punting companies offer umbrellas & blankets
  • If you’d prefer a less energetic option then our river cruises in both Bath and Oxford may be preferable. These may best be enjoyed around midday or in the late evening when a delicious picnic feast can be provided (with wine and champagne if you wish)
  • Different venues vary so please talk to your holiday advisor when booking for the exact details of the activity

Other Ideas: boating, kayaking, coasteering, river cruises, picnic on the river bank
