CRUISE THEN DINE – to The Plough Fen Ditton
To complement the general public hop-on trips,
enjoy an early evening river trip to a riverside pub.
Departing at 5pm from Jesus Lock you can enjoy a 45 minute one-way trip to a popular riverside destination. This route takes you downstream leaving the city behind heading past Midsummer Common, the rowing teams boathouses, the Old Pumping Station, and city meadows. A lovely stretch of river covering both cityscape and wildlife, however this is also the racing part of the river for rowing.
