Oxford Royale Summer Schools students take to the river this summer

One of the very best ways to see Oxford is from its rivers, the Cherwell and the Isis (which is the traditional name for the Thames when it flows through Oxford).

A cruise is a novel way to see Oxford.

Students at Oxford Royale Summer Schools have long had the opportunity to try out the traditional Oxford activity of punting down the Cherwell on a summer afternoon. New for 2015, students aged 13-15 will also have the chance to enjoy a river cruise down the Isis on an old-fashioned steamer.
Starting from Folly Bridge and going as far as Iffley Lock, the cruise takes students past Christ Church meadow, the Kidneys and university boathouses. Students can soak up the sun on the open deck, enjoy the view and learn about the history of Oxford from the expert commentary.
