A very special London charter boat experience
Would you like an astonishing river spectacle? Why not open Tower Bridge with our beautiful and charismatic historic Sailing Barge Will? She will charm and impress your guests with her luxurious mahogany-panelled saloon for entertaining groups up to 50.
Cruising east from Tower Pier, Sailing Barge Will is the perfect, small venue for corporate entertaining, team building, and intimate parties. Onboard facilities include PA system, multimedia projector and screen, and sound system with MP3 connection.
Currently based in South Quay, Canary Wharf, we also offer a perfect location for static events within the West India Dock with stunning views across the water at extraordinary architecture and glass towers of the Canary Wharf Estate.
Opening Tower Bridge on your charter
There are not many private hire boats in London that can create this very special experience. SB Will’s masts are 30 metres high so whenever she needs to pass Tower Bridge either picking up or dropping off her lucky guests, she sets into motion a wonderful chain of events. On approaching the iconic London landmark, guests on deck will first hear the distant warning sirens as the road barriers descend and the crossing traffic is brought to a standstill. Then slowly but surely, as you gently cruise closer, you will see the huge bascules of the bridge start to rise and separate. Tourists and Londoners in the vicinity stop and stare at this rare sight as you Will and your guests take centre stage. With perfect timing, the bridge’s bascules are raised high as you cruise majestically through, entering (or leaving if the start of your cruise) the ‘Pool of London’, the historic area of the Thames between Tower and London Bridge. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, once enjoyed, never forgotten. Contact us now to organise this special cruise experience for your party.
