Pangbourne is a small town located near the River Thames. Many people like taking boat trips down the river and enjoy the fresh mid-day air until the day is over. There are numerous facilities for children and adults including a Water and Sports Center, where you can have fun in the rainy days, or enjoy the boating regattas in the summer months when the weather is at its best.
