Just to say I called Salters Steamers this morning to check about their boat trips for 20 August and was advised for us to consider a trip from Henley on Thames that day - they are definitely running two 45 minute trips along the Regatta route to Temple Island (£6.50) at both 2.15 and 3.15 pm. It seems three boats will be used for weddings from Marlow that day and they may have a fourth but can't confirm until later next week.
In Henley, the boats go from Mill Meadows, the landing stage next to the public riverside area close to the River and Rowing Museum - parking available and also at Henley station which is adjacent. Website provides detil - www.saltersteamers.co.uk
Having had a brief look at potential pubs for lunch, The Anchor in Friday Street (www.theanchorhenley.co.uk
) has recently been completely refurbished and has a covered garden and nice bar area - both welcoming dogs. It is also a 6 minute walk from Mill Meadows.
Appreciate this proposes a change of plan slightly, but wondered if this appeals - Henley is a lovely town and if the weather is good we could also take in a walk. If not, the River and Rowing Museum is definitely worth a visit.
Any interest? This is the list of people who expressed interest before.
