French Brothers - Runnymede 45 minute round trip
Board newly refurbished 'Lucy Fisher', a replica of a Victorian paddle steamer at the Runnymede Boathouse and cruise upstream to the Bells of Ouzeley, which is featured in Jerome K. Jerome's "Three Men in a Boat".
Here the boat turns, heading downstream passing the Memorials, and onto the Runnymede Pleasure Grounds where the boat stops for 5 minutes so that passengers may embark or disembark making the trip ideal for families who like to picnic.
Excellent for those who would like this more 'traditional' boat. The length of the trip also makes it perfect for children and the level landing stages and easy access to the boat makes this an ideal trip for those people with disabilities.
This trip can be boarded at either the Runnymede Boathouse or Runnymede Pleasure Grounds. Although we recommend the Runnymede boathouse for less able bodied groups.
Parking Runnymede Boathouse: Please park in the National Trust car park adjacent to Runnymede boatyard and obtain a pay & display ticket from the machine.
