Mucking about on the river – a UK tour

We’re always looking at how we can improve our offering to our customers who book with us to enjoy boat hospitality on the Thames whether that be for office parties at Christmas, or a summer clay shooting cruise. To keep our eye on the market we look around and see what’s out there. Being London based and daily dipping our toes into the Thames, it’s easy to think London is the centre of the universe when it comes to having a party on the river.

On the water in the UK

Well, in the spirit of ‘thinking outside the box’ we’ve cast our nets wider than normal to take in what’s what in terms of mucking about on a boat if you aren’t based in the big smoke. We’re pleased to report back and the news is water based events and hospitality is in rude health all around the country. Even If we go way inland to Birmingham you will find some rather nice looking canal barges plying the waterways, in Sheffield like us they also run all sorts of cruise events including for wedding celebrations. The mighty Tyne in Newcastle has their own take on ‘river escapes’ and we all know they’ll throw a good party!

We know all about Bristol having run boat hospitality there ourselves at the first International Festival of the Sea way back in 1996!  We’ve kept strong links with the city ever since and it’s great to see our friends on The Matthew still doing great events for corporate and party hire. Closer to London, the best educated party goers enjoy the beautiful Isis and Cherwell in Oxford which has its own charming fleet to serve water bound revellers. You can float along the idyllic Cam in Cambridge with Georgina passing other keen punters along the way. The River Medway has the Kentish Lady amongst others, which like us gives its guests the best way to while away an afternoon or evening.

Party boat hire in London

This was a whistle-stop tour but it certainly seems parties on the water are floating everybody’s boat all around the UK.  If you find yourselves London bound though and want to enjoy the very best boats and service that our 25 years of capital experience bring you, then get in touch.
