Our unique experience combines boats, exploring and picnic opportunities.

So why not unwind this Coronation weekend by hopping aboard a GoBoat? Here are just a few reasons why GoBoat is the perfect bank holiday activity:

1. King Charles loves nature & is a fantastic advocate for water sustainability

At GoBoat, you have the chance to surround yourself with nature and discover England’s waterways.

The King’s Coronation celebrates the natural beauty of the United Kingdom and its connection with the Royal Family. The former Prince of Wales, HM King Charles III is an avid advocate for protecting the UK’s waterways and promoting canal conservation. As a Patron of the Canal and River Trust he has been actively involved in multiple conservation projects.

If you're looking to honor this spirit of the Coronation Weekend, then a day out on a GoBoat is the perfect way to do it. With stunning views of Hampton Court Palace from GoBoat Kingston or GoBoat Thames Ditton, you'll feel immersed in nature while cruising down the Thames.

2. A crowd-free activity to do during this Coronation Weekend

GoBoat provides a peaceful and calming escape from the crowds, allowing you to relax and enjoy the stunning views of London or Birmingham without being involved in the crowds.

We’d highly recommend pre-booking ahead of time so that you can choose when you’d like your boat adventure to begin without having to wait for a boat to be available.

With no boating experience required, GoBoat is an accessible and easy way to enjoy the waterways and let go of the stresses of everyday life.
