MARLOW upon THAMES the PLACE to BE!










The Compleat Angler, or the Contemplative Man's Recreation, was written by Isaak Walton in 1653 as a guide to the art of fly-fishing, but in so doing it paints a reflective picture of rural England that extols the pleasure of country life, and in particular, life on the river.

Our guide takes its inspiration from Walton and takes the discerning visitor to the heart of the River Thames as it flows from the elegance of Oxford to the majesty of Richmond-Upon-Thames.

Let us help you explore one of the most beautiful parts of England that has inspired poets, writers and painters for many centuries.
Today the river meanders through some of the most beautiful and culturally rich landscapes of Britain. Away from the frantic activities of everyday life the peaceful edges of the river guard their timeless secrets.
