Celebrating her 13th year, the attractive 8-passenger Magna Carta is an ideal venue for both first-time travelers to England as well as veterans. Based on the Thames River, she cruises a deliciously pastoral English countryside itinerary from Hampton Court Palace to classic Henley-on-Thames, famous for the Henley Regatta. Sights are visited via private minivan with your own guide, featuring several special-interest itineraries such as English Gardens, Murder and Mystery, and Countryside Walking. Modern amenities onboard include heated floors and TV/DVD and CD players. The deck boasts beautiful teak furniture and a large Jacuzzi. Captain and co-owner Dominic Read is happy to customize the itinerary to the interests and objectives of his guests. This is a fabulous way to show your children or grandchildren the world-renowned landmarks that line this bucolic, “Wind-in-the-Willows” section of the Thames River, with plenty of cycling available along the riverside bike route.
