Winter & Christmas 2018
The festive season is fast approaching, we are currently taking bookings for Christmas charters & we also have a number of public cruises running throughout the winter months.
Christmas & New Year are just around the corner & we still have dates available for Christmas charters. Our fleet boasts a range of tastefully decorated, versatile party boats perfectly suited for private & corporate events on the River Thames.
Our bespoke hospitality & delicious seasonal menus combine to create the perfect Christmas atmosphere on-board. From festive finger food like our Grilled Turkey & Stuffing Pitta to fine dining options like our Roast Norfolk Turkey or Wild Mushroom Strudel we really do have a dish for every occasion. All of our menus use locally sourced, freshly prepared & delicious ingredients which are perfectly complemented by our fine wine collection.
During the Christmas season our vessels are decorated with festive garlands, twinkling Christmas lighting & can accommodate up to 128 guests for seated dinners or 180 guests for standing receptions. Heated interiors, spacious open decks & London’s iconic skyline make a private hire vessel on the River Thames the perfect venue for your Christmas function.

Our Sunday Evening Cruises have now finished for our Autumn break. Our London Christmas Cruises will start on Sunday 25th November & run for four weeks (finishing on Sunday 16th December).
Our London Christmas Cruises are 2-hour Thames circular sightseeing tours departing Greenwich Pier at 18:00. The cruises operate on Sunday evenings for four weeks between Sunday 25th November & Sunday 16th December 2018.

Our 5-hour shared New Year’s Eve boat parties depart from Westminster Pier on-board large Class V passenger boats. All of our shared boat parties are £160 per person and include selected beers, ciders, wines, soft drinks, a cold finger buffet and a disco.
The boats will be tastefully decorated with festive decorations and twinkling Christmas lighting creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere on-board. The interior spaces are heated and feature fully licensed bars serving a wide range of free beers, ciders, wines, & soft drinks (spirits, sparkling wine & Champagne are available for purchase).
A live DJ will be playing music on the dance floor throughout the evening where you can dance the night away. The finger buffet will be served in the saloon where you can relax and take in the sights of Central London’s greatest landmarks as we cruise through the city.
At midnight, you can head outside to the open deck to marvel at the midnight firework display and welcome the New Year in style.
