Oxford, Oxfordshire

Take your partner on a romantic picnic as you glide along the peaceful River Cherwell, wending your way past half-submerged logs and fellow punters.

There are shady shallows, blossom-laden bushes and low-slung bridges to negotiate – not to mention the rollers to take you to the next river level. And don’t forget your piece of string…to trail your bottle of refreshing bubbly in the cool waters.

If you’d prefer to enjoy al fresco dining on dry land, drop into the Teahut Bar and Café for a light meal on the river terrace.
