Salters Steamers operate an Oxford to Abingdon scheduled boat service 7 days a week between 23rd May and 13th September (weather permitting). Starting opposite Christchurch Meadows and finishing in the market town of Abingdon this is one of the most picturesque journeys in Oxfordshire.
Salters Steamers have been running both scheduled services and short boat trips from Oxford and Abingdon for over 100 years and are an established part of the Thames traffic in Oxfordshire in the high season. If a half day's excursion is what is required, Salter's short boat trips to Culham Lock and back might fit the bill.
