Farncombe Boats

This truly delightful river is one of Surrey’s best kept secrets. In the spring the woods are full of kingcups and bluebells. There are flower-strewn water meadows in the summer. And, later in the year, the colours of autumn are really brought to life on the river.

You will be surprised, above all, at the rural tranquility of this river, remarkable in its setting at the heart of commuter-land and within sight, at one point of the M25. Historically too, this is a fascinating waterway, being one of the first canalised rivers in the country, dating back to 1653. Today the 20 mile navigable stretch of the river and its 16 locks, are owned and maintained by The National Trust, and their Exhibition Centre at Dapdune Wharf in Guildford is well worth a visit.
