If you’d like to explore Britain’s most historic river or just relax and let the world drift by there’s no better way to start than with Hobbs. Based in the beautiful riverside market town of Henley-on-Thames and just 40 miles away from London (around an hour by train), you can experience your very own self-driven boat with out boat hire or enjoy a public cruise or private charter.
Whether you want to rent a rowing boat or pack a picnic and enjoy a lazy day on a launch, our self-drive boat hire gives you and your family or friends the chance to take turns at being captain.
Our self drive fleet can seat up to 12 persons depending on the boat and can be hired from 1 hour, ½ a day or a full day. Or if you’re looking to spend even more time on the river, find out more about becoming a seasonal member of our Henley Boat Club.
We boast 147 years’ of experience in our family firm and have the largest fleet on the Thames. We’re easy to find in the heart of Henley.
