Thursday, 4th June: Midsomer Murders and the Goring Gap Cruise

A bridge over a body of water

Description automatically generatedThe Goring Gap is the dramatic gorge where the River Thames chisels its way through the Chiltern Hills. Nearby are the picturesque villages and towns filmed as the fictional county of Midsomer. We visit Alfred the Great's Wallingford and Dorchester - a head-turning village full of mediaeval, Tudor and Georgian buildings before rounding off our day out with a two-hour cruise through the Goring Gap.

Having stopped for coffee and pastries at Basingstoke, we will meet our Blue Badge Guide in Wallingford in time to enjoy a little local trail.  This is Midsomer's Causton and fans will recognise many locations. A short drive away is Dorchester - a very small village with a very big Abbey, one of the earliest Christian sites in England.  A main course lunch with coffee/tea is included at a 15th century coaching inn used in several Midsomer episodes.


In the afternoon, we board the boat at Benson Waterfront for the seven-mile cruise beneath the Chilterns through three locks to the Goring Gap.  The magnificent scenery around the Goring Gap is the setting for Wind in the Willows, Watership Down and Three Men in a Boat. We step ashore at elegant Goring, which became fashionable in the late 1800s when residents included Oscar Wilde.  Let's hope for some gorgeous early summer weather!

The cost is £65 pp which includes coach, morning coffee and pastries, blue badge guide, lunch with tea/coffee, river boat cruise and gratuities (coach and guide).
