Fast, bespoke river transfers to events across the city

For clients looking for transportation or river transfers between events, we are able to offer any of our three cruising riverboats to transfer guests across London on the River Thames. The choice of vessel will depend on your group size but the William BV is our busiest boat for this service, taking all groups between 25 and 85 guests.

We work regularly with clients transporting guests to and from events and offices to conferences, concerts and parties at many locations along the river, including but not limited to

  • Canary Wharf
  • 02 Arena
  • Coca Cola London Eye (Waterloo pier)
  • Shakespeare’s Globe
  • Westminster & the Houses of Parliament
  • Tower of London & Tower Bridge
  • Greenwich
  • City of London
  • And many more

We are able to facilitate many different client requirements from a straight transfer between one pier and another, to having a champagne reception, canapés/buffet and light entertainment.

Please contact the office to discuss your requirements and prices. There is no set fee as there are many mitigating factors such as time of day, pier requirements, timings etc.
