If we are lucky summer has finally arrived, and if we are even luckier it might decide to hang around for a while. Why not spend an enjoyable evening cruising along the Thames between Eel Pie Island, Twickenham and Hampton Court (and back again) in a Mississippi style stern wheeler, dining, listening to live jazz and tasting wine? Can you think of any better way to eat, drink and be merry? This may only be the south of England, but I'm sure you could pretend to be in the southern United States navigating Ole Man River.

Further information and tickets are available from Crusader Travel.
