Take to the Thames for a fantastic day out!

This is a first class opportunity to glide past the grandeur of Hampton Court palace taking in the striking architecture from an unrivalled perspective. The whole tour will be hosted by a fully qualified British Canoe Union (BCU) instructor who will also act as tour guide pointing out key places of interest and filling you in on all the history as you pass by. During the 90 minute tranquil experience on the water you will set off from the slipway beside the pub ‘œYe Olde Swan’ at Thames Ditton and witness the beauty and some of the well-known and less well-known landmarks along this part of the river . However the Palace itself has to be the highlight of this remarkable tour. From your kayak you will gain an unmatched riverside view of the iconic glittering golden gates that lead the way to Hampton Court Palace. Originally built for Cardinal Wolsey and then later taken back by King Henry VIII in the early 16th Century when the palace was extended. Hampton Court is a stunning mix of two distinctly contrasting architectural styles domestic Tudor and Baroque and you’ll see everything from the likes of the estate’s riding school to the Royal Mews.
