Welcome to Walton Boat Hire

There’s no better way to appreciate the beautiful River Thames than by hiring a self drive boat with your family or friends from Walton Boat Hire. Our brand new fleet of Banks Marin, Henley and Sports Fisher ‘Admiral Class‘ motor boats seat a maximum of six people in complete comfort and style so let your adventure begin here……

Our Mission

Its simple, we love boats and we love the river.

If you fancy taking the kids out on an adventure, having a romantic picnic with a loved one or finding a secluded spot to paint, write or watch the wildlife - we'd love for you to come and experience a wonderful day boating on the River Thames.

The Boats

We operate our day boats from Easter to October. No licence is necessary as our handover with instructions and safety brief will be given before you embark on your trip. Life jackets are available for adults and children. Dogs are welcome on board too!

Need some supplies for the day?

We offer teas and coffees, cold beverages as well as a large selection of food, all of which are absolutely delicious! Indulge yourself in a crusty bacon roll, toastie, sandwich or panini for breakfast or lunch or treat yourself to a slice of one of our fabulous handmade cakes.

We are also fully licensed if you fancy a glass of wine, prosecco or beer!
