Event Ideas

Below are a few ideas/concepts worth considering when planning your special event.

Entertainment Options

We have a wide variety of entertainment options. A DJ/Disco is always popular with most parties but other firm favourites are a Close Up Magician, a Caricaturist, a Jazz Band, a Photographer/Photobooth and Garden/Pub/Deck games.

Birthday Parties

Given the capacity of our boats, they’re the perfect venue for hosting a Birthday party on the Thames. Whether it be with friends, family or both, we can build a package to suit most budgets.


Whilst no ‘moving’ boat is permitted to host the actual wedding ceremony, you can have your Reception onboard! With flexible seating options and full serviced Galleys, we’re ideal for the more intimate celebrations (up to 60 people).  We’ve held numerous wedding receptions and can also be used as a water taxi to transfer guests (up to 120 guests) or as a short option whilst your reception room at a nearby wedding venue may be being prepared for you after the ceremony.

Conference & Meetings

Whether it be a breakfast meeting, lunch or an after conference party, we’ve proved popular for all. Need to view the ever changing buildings along the shoreline…well from the river is the perfect way to do so. Even better, we’re mobile, meaning that time can used efficiently as you hold your meeting whilst travelling along the river to your next destination!

Tours & Sightseeing

Year on year, visitor figures on the Thames increase. The constant, ever changing skyline and shoreside attractions mean that ‘from the river’, really is the best view….ok unless you have your own personal helicopter!

Hen & Stag Parties

Whilst the public/weekly Thames Disco Cruise  package proves extremely popular with London Hen and Stag parties, our 2 boats are ideal for an ‘exclusive’ celebration.

Some like to be reserved and have an Afternoon Tea, whilst others may prefer to have a fun filled cruise with games, karaoke, decorations etc.

Product Launches & Media/PR

Views from the Thames offer the perfect backdrop to any function, in particular Product Launches and PR/Media events.

The words ‘Boat Cruise, London, Food, Drink, Entertainment, Networking’ will be certain to ensure you have a full guestlist, all excited to attend.


With some of the most iconic landmarks in the World and and a thriving Film Industry in the UK, the Thames proves time and time again to be a popular setting for many Big Screen  Blockbusters and TV series and even Music videos.

Our boat the Wyndham has a great outside area, providing the perfect platform for filming.
