Magna Carta is one of the finest, most luxurious vessels cruising the British Isles today. The ambience created by combining a traditional 1936-built barge hull with fine mahogany, teak and oak woods is outstanding. Modern amenities include under floor heating, spa pool and contemporary en suite facilities for the four spacious 200sq ft suites.
The upper deck saloon and dining area feature picture windows and stylish furnishings. Your Master Chef produces a range of mouth-watering dishes whilst you enjoy the riverside surroundings from your floating country hotel.
Her experienced Captain knows the Thames well and will pilot the barge and be your tour guide. Your Master Chef will produce a range of mouth watering dishes whilst you enjoy the sights of royal Berkshire, historic Buckinghamshire and beautiful Oxfordshire from your floating country inn. Two house keepers complete the crew of four.
Magna Carta will also be offering a special itinerary to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta. She will cruise right past the site of the signing at Runnymede and there will also be an excursion to Salisbury Cathedral to see the world’s best-preserved original copy of the famous charter.
