Joint ventures from French Brother

Date Posted: 12/01/2011

Passenger boat operator French Brothers has created two new joint ventures for 2011, featuring popular visitor attractions Beckonscot Model Village and Hampton Court Palace.

A new package launched in conjunction with Bekonscot Model Village offers groups of 20 or more the chance to enjoy a relaxing cruise combined with a visit to what is reportedly the world’s oldest model village.

Beginning with a two and a half hour cruise from Windsor, passengers will be served a delicious ploughman’s lunch onboard. Groups will then rejoin their coach to travel to Bekonscot, where members can spend the afternoon as a giant in this world of miniature, exploring the buildings portraying rural England in the 1930s. Two of the French Brothers steam boats are also reproduced in the display.

Groups can also choose to combine a boat trip with a visit to Hampton Court Palace, with tickets available at special rates directly from French Brothers. GTOs can purchase tickets in advance, saving time and providing fast-track entry into the palace. Groups have the option of travelling on the boat to Hampton Court in the morning, or arriving there by coach to then take the afternoon boat to Chertsey or Runnymede.

Promoted as one of the largest passenger boat firms in the UK, French Brothers has been operating boat trips on the River Thames for 30 years. The firm boasts a fleet of 17 boats with capacities of up to 150 passengers.
