boat party on the thames

A complete guide to London pier travel connections

June 5th 2017

Taking responsibility for a group of people, whether it’s 20 of your closest friends or 250 work colleagues, can be tricky when organising your boat party on the Thames.

Getting everyone in the same place in the same place is a huge achievement in itself, but things get a little more complicated when Lisa needs to be home by 10.30pm, Dave can only stay for two hours, and Laura has to be at Embankment station no later than 11.40pm in order to catch the last tube home.

Manoeuvring public transport links for your guests whilst planning your boat party on the Thames doesn’t have to be an extra task to add to your event checklist.

Many of our customers choose alternative embarkation and disembarkation piers, with additional stops in between their time on the river for ultimate convenience and flexibility.
