Magdalen Bridge Boathouse

activities / Boating & cruises

Lonely Planet review

A great way to soak up Oxford’s atmosphere is to take to the Isis (the name of the Thames in these parts) in a punt. These can be hired from the Magdalen Bridge Boathouse just below the northeast end of Magdalen Bridge, and Salters Boat Hire next to the Head of the River pub on Folly Bridge. Salters also offer a 40-minute river steamer cruise.
