160 years in the making.
Salter’s Steamers are a family firm that has provided first-class hospitality on the Royal River Thames for over 160 years – Est. 1858. As one of the longest established firms on the Thames we own one of the largest and most exclusive fleets operating on the river. Our cruises combine traditional style, contemporary comforts and the highest modern standards.
We offer a variety of hugely popular boat trips through some of the most beautiful scenery in England. During the summer we offer boat trips from every major location on the Upper-Thames between the university city of Oxford and Marlow, including such famous places as Abingdon, Reading and Henley.
Celebrations on the Thames.
Our exclusive craft can be privately chartered as the perfect venue for all kinds of function, party or celebration, including showpiece events such as the Henley Royal Regatta.
We also hire out punts, day-boats and other small craft from Oxford, as well as operating charters on the Solent. In addition we are now offering a timetable of one-off special cruises held from a number of different locations throughout the year. These include public jazz cruises from Oxford and Windsor, special services along unusual routes such as Oxford to Wolvercote as well as different trips to mark certain events such as Bunkfest at Wallingford.
