Mickey Stott, Asante Capital, The Clay Shoot Cruise

“I had the most fantastic party on Saturday, and my friends all said what a great party it was. The boat looked great, the renovations to the upper floor have transformed it. Most people stayed on the top deck to enjoy the river scenery. My friends all commented how delicious the food was, so thanks to the caterers. Not forgetting the great bar staff who were friendly and great at keeping the boat clear of used glasses and plates. The DJ was also fantastic, very accommodating of our requests..many thanks to him. Please pass on my thanks to all involved.”

“Inclarity Communications would like to thank Thames Leisure for providing a superb setting for its Reseller day on Wednesday 18th May. All of our guests were impressed with the river barge, the standard of the food served throughout the day and especially the hospitality of the Thames Leisure staff on board.”

“We took a trip on Sailing Barge Will for our office Christmas party.  30 of us were on board and were treated to a delicious 3 course dinner, a roaring fire and beautiful views of Christmassy London with drinks in hand. We even stopped the traffic when Tower Bridge was opened for us, twice! All the team were extremely helpful both in the run up to the event and on the night itself. Nothing was too much trouble for the team and we were able to customise our event to suit our needs. A night to remember and definitely one to recommend.”

Ridgeway Digital, Staff Christmas Party

“Weather wasn’t great but the rain stayed away despite the chill we still had a great time aboard Will – the 90 year old Sailing barge. When we boarded we were delighted to see a great fire below deck which made the area cosy and warmed us up. The staff were excellent, my (adult) daughter even had a go steering the vessel – with the Captain standing right next to her! Drinks on board were surprisingly inexpensive and they even catered for my Gluten free diet with a Gluten Fee scone – which was lovely. During the trip we went on both the outside and lower decks and it was fine to move around meaning we got to the sights we wanted. The best bit for me was seeing London come to a halt as Tower Bridge was raised just for us. I did smile – a lot.”

Robert Stevenson, Birthday Party Cruise

“I warmly recommend Thames Leisure – the main thing is that it was a lovely occasion thanks to beautiful barge, delicious meal and super helpful staff! I found everyone concerned very efficient and amenable – they were very flexible and let us ‘customise’ to suit the party for my father. Many thanks!”

Richard Osborne, birthday cruise

“I hired the William B for a workshop dinner for 70 people. The cruise lasted for four hours and took in all the main sites from the Millennium Dome to MI6, with the Captain even ensuring we passed the Houses of Parliaments in time for the hourly chimes of Big Ben. The food was good, the bar was well stocked and the top deck made for a great vantage point. All the guests (even longterm Londoners) had a great time and loved seeing London from such a unique vantage point. Everyone on the boat and at Thames Leisure were very helpful and friendly throughout. I would highly recommend this event.”
