Boating at Cliveden

Based in The Boathouse at Cliveden Estate, we operate the highest quality of boats for hire on the Thames.

Boating at Cliveden is the boating offer for Cliveden Estate run by The Electric Boat Company. Following restoration of the boathouse and significant investment in the riverfront by the National Trust our brand new fleet of electric and passenger powered boats offers an unrivalled way to enjoy this beautiful reach of the River Thames.

Cliveden Estate has flourished for centuries due to its location on the river. Throughout its past the Thames would be busy with pleasure boaters in a variety of small pleasure craft, an experience we aim to recreate with our varied fleet of traditional style launches.

Whether you are visiting with family or friends, celebrating a special occasion or just looking to enjoy some time messing about on the river we hope to welcome you aboard soon.
