When family life has been taken over by hospital appointments and treatment schedules, it’s good to take some time off and enjoy a proper family day out. Our Family Riverboat Day is the perfect opportunity to do just that!
Our guests will arrive for a welcome snack (late breakfast?) on the Richmond Venturer before setting off down the Thames. Whether you want to relax and watch the world go by, or get involved with sailing the boat and learning about life on the Thames, the choice is yours. Youngsters of all ages will find plenty to keep them occupied on this fabulous boat and everyone can have a go at steering! The Richmond Venturer is a specially converted Dutch barge, so in addition to being a really comfortable way to sail the River Thames, it is safe for all ages and also fully accessible for those with a range of mobility issues (as long as we know in advance).
The trip is suitable for all ages and abilities.
There is no charge for participating in the day's activities, which will include lunch.
“The day was really peaceful and gave us a moment to stop and take time away from the continuing hospital appointments we face week to week. Our children really enjoyed the boat, taking part was great fun and really gave them a sense of ownership for the day. The crew were greatly informative about the boat and its history.” Candy
