It’s not all about the boats!

Our fabulous three vessels are the stages on which we deliver experiences and memories.

However, there is so much more to event on the River Thames when you are with Thames Leisure. We have some wonderful hand-picked entertainers selected because they are the best around and what they do works so well on our boats. Engaging your guests beyond the enchanting sights and sounds of London can be stepped up a gear with great team-building activities too. Don’t miss out on our incredible Clay Shooting cruises! And if you want to add your own personal touch to your event, no problem, decoration and theming is just a phone call away.
