Hiring A London Boat - The Sky Is The Limit

Looking for the ultimate venue for celebrations or corporate entertainment in London? A boat on the Thames could be just what you are looking for. There are a plethora of options you can choose from to create the perfect bespoke event. Anything from classic elegance to high energy, modern London party boats for hire.

For entertaining a small party the M.V. Edwardian is a classic beautiful Thames boat with an open upper deck that I believe is perfect for enjoying all the thrilling London sights with your nearest and dearest, accompanied of course by a glass or 2 of champagne! If it is a party with an electrifying twist you are looking for I recommend, the recently refurbished M.V. Erasmus London party boat. It has an exciting multi faceted lighting system and smooth chrome finishes making it in my opinion the sleekest vessel on the Thames, there really is none other like her. If you are looking to entertain a larger number of people, the P.S. Dixie Queen could be the perfect Thames Boat to hire. I have seen her used for everything from ticketed club nights to cooperate silver service events both of which worked brilliantly.

Most vessels have at least 1 fully stocked bar with the capacity to add anything you desire, from your favourite beer to a Pimms reception! When it comes to menu options, the sky really is the limit, as you can have anything from canap├ęs to afternoon tea, to BBQ's to silver service fine dining banquets. Your night really can be tailored to your every requirement.

Entertainment options are just as vast as London party boats have the ability to provide a range of live entertainment, DJ's, magicians or even belly dancers. The professionally trained staff and crew are there to help you with whatever you desire and will constantly strive to make your charter the best yet.

Thinking out of the box? Why not try clay pigeon shooting off the back of the P.S. Elizabethan? If that's not for you why not try a James Bond themed casino night? The boats can be decked out with drapes, balloons, flowers...the list is endless. Anything and everything really is possible.

If budget is not an issue combine several boats, a large London party boat with Thames speed boat and a power boat for added amusement for guests. Moor the party boat at a London pier and small groups can go for high speed blasts on the Thames. A good one for this is the London Thames Jet Boat which provides the ultimate adrenaline ride on the river. There are also many different shapes and sizes of RIB speed boats available including a fleet of 14 which are identical and have a combined capacity of 112 people. Imagine the photographs!

Thames: The Biography meanders gloriously, rather like the river itself. In short, lively chapters Ackroyd writes about connections between the Thames and such historical figures as Julius Caesar and Henry VIII, and offers memorable portraits of the ordinary men and w
