If you want to enjoy a birthday party in London with a twist, why not try something different this year: celebrate with a birthday boat party cruise on the River Thames!

At Thames Leisure we have a selection of four unique birthday boat party venues in London, each with their own individual features and charm. There’s no better way to party than seeing the city skyline pass you by as you eat, drink, and be merry! We can create a night for you and your friends to remember. Importantly, we’ll also make it easy for you every step of the way.

For a special treat, we can even open up the iconic Tower Bridge for you and your guests as you cruise into the heart of the city. Or take in all of London’s sights, passing famous landmarks such as Big Ben, the London Eye, and the O2 arena.

Personalise Your Birthday Party Cruise

We can accommodate almost all party sizes ranging from 25 to 375 guests and can provide you with catering, entertainment, decorations, live bands, and a DJ. From luxury yachts and converted Thames Barges to large capacity river cruisers, we have the perfect floating venue for you.

Managing and delivering your event – stress-free

Our friendly and professional office and boat/yacht crews are used to putting on fantastic parties and know how special they are. Let us look after you with suggestions, guidance and efficiency.

A birthday boat party For Those On A Budget

Our most economical option is our twin­-decked river cruiser Tideway. She can carry anywhere from 25 to 85 guests and comes equipped with a comfortable, intimate saloon and a well-­stocked bar. An outside area is also available so you can continue celebrating underneath the city sky. Although Tideway is very affordable, the parties she plays host to are as impressive as any to be had on the Thames.

For A Touch Of Historic Authenticity

If you are hoping for a unique river cruise experience, you might want to consider hiring the classic Sailing Barge Will ­our historic sailing ship that features a cosy saloon, complete with log fire, wood panelling, and tall masts to open Tower Bridge. Sailing Barge Will is ideal for intimate birthday gatherings and can accommodate up to 50 guests.

For A Classic Luxurious Venue

Are you looking for a luxurious river venue in which to celebrate your birthday? Then you should consider hiring our William B river boat. Housing a spacious bar, large windows, and a breathtaking galley, the stylish and elegant William B boasts a wood panelled entrance hall, plush carpets, and polished brass handrails and wall lights. With its modern stateroom, subdued lighting, and classic design features, the William B is the perfect choice for a more formal and classy birthday party.

For those with lots of friends!

If you are celebrating with a large number of guests who really want to let their hair down, you should probably opt for our flagship Dutch Master riverboat. Able to carry up to 375 guests, the Dutch Master is one of the biggest passenger boats in the city. As the river venue of choice for many top party promoters, she comes fully decked out with two separate bars, a booming sound system, and a large open area, all spread across three floors.

Bespoke, Themed Birthday Parties

We can provide various themed parties such as pirate parties, a casino, and even murder mystery nights, as well as many more besides. We try to be as flexible as possible, so if you have any special requests for unusual party cruise themes, please contact us and we’ll do our best!
