When people talk about the ‘Golden Age of Steam’, they are usually referring to the advances that made rail travel popular, but the use of steam as a mode of propelling boats preceded its use on the railways by some decades. The technology was developed almost simultaneously in France, Scotland and the United States in the late 18th Century, with a raft of inventors trialling different ways to make steam boats efficient as passenger vehicles, freight ships and even warships. Perhaps this is why steam boats evoke such an air of nostalgia – just seeing one is enough to make any boating enthusiast want to take to the water. This trip is a chance to enjoy stunning scenery, an exquisite cream tea and have the chance to explore the beautifully-appointed vessel as it carries its passengers through the grounds of Windsor Castle.
This experience is a chance to experience what life on the water was like centuries ago, in a boat that has stood the test of time. Guests are welcomed aboard the genuine Victorian steam vessel for a 2.5-hour cruise which departs from Windsor promenade at 3 pm, just in time to enjoy a something to eat.
As the beautiful scenery slips past, guests will be served a cream tea which will make them feel like royalty, comprising a range of deep-filled sandwiches, tea cakes, tarts, shortbread fingers and freshly prepared scones with butter, clotted cream and an array of preserves. These are all accompanied by a selection of teas and coffees.
The boat will drift gently downstream towards Windsor Castle, with background music playing throughout the cruise and live commentary as the boat passes sights of special interest. With factual and historical insights into the royal residence and the surrounding area.
This is the perfect experience for anyone who appreciates the finer things in life and enjoys the chance to enjoy themselves with an afternoon tea in truly regal surroundings

1. Control and protection of personal data
When you use PayPal’s services to receive payments from your customers, both you and PayPal will be using the personal data of those customers. We have amended section 5.7 to outline PayPal’s and your agreed respective positions at law (and your obligations) regarding the use of personal data of your customers and other individuals in connection with your use of PayPal’s services. Section 5.7 now reads as follows (with added wording underlined):
Compliance with Data Protection Laws. With regard to any personal data processed by PayPal and the merchant in connection with this Agreement, PayPal and the merchant will respectively each be a controller in respect of such processing. PayPal and the merchant agree to comply with the requirements of the Data Protection Laws applicable to controllers in respect of the provision of their respective services and otherwise in connection with this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, PayPal and the merchant each have their own, independently determined privacy policies, notices and procedures for the personal data they hold and are each a data controller (and not joint data controllers). In complying with the Data Protection Laws, PayPal and the merchant shall, without limitation:
a. implement and maintain at all times all appropriate security measures in relation to the processing of personal data;
b. maintain a record of all processing activities carried out under this Agreement; and
c. not knowingly do anything or permit anything to be done which might lead to a breach by the other party of the Data Protection Laws.
In addition to our rights under section 10.2, where we determine that there has been or that there is a reasonable likelihood of a security breach of your website or systems that could result in the unauthorised disclosure of customer information, we may take any other actions we deem necessary and/or require you to provide us with information related to any such breach.”
