About the neighbourhood
From our base just outside Guildford you can spend a leisurely two days getting onto the River Thames, where a visit to Hampton Court or Windsor Castle are just two of the many options. Moor up just across from Thorpe Park theme park, catch a bus in Windsor to visit Legoland, or visit RHS Wisley Gardens. Enjoy life at a slower pace on board Box of Delights, a cool drink on board in the summer evenings, or a cosy evening with a DVD, radiators and a wood burning stove during the colder months. Do a spot of fishing, enjoy the wildlife, visit the excellent pubs which offer moorings to visitors.
