Seated Dinners

Seated dining for a classic River Thames experience

Taking place on either our flagship ‘William B’ or the charming historic Thames Sailing Barge ‘Will’, a seated dinner is a wonderful way to relax on your private boat cruise. On William B you can take in beautiful London river-scapes and skylines through panoramic windows, or on Will  you can luxuriate in the rare surroundings of a much loved saloon from a bygone age, extra special in Winter with the log fire roaring away.

Make dining an Experience on your Thames Leisure charter

Whilst we are wary of ‘gilding the lily’, a serene cruise on London’s beautiful river can be made even better by the addition of an extra thoughtful touch. Whilst London’s constantly changing sights and sounds guarantee you’ll never get bored, it can really add to the experience by either enhancing the atmosphere still further with some live music to suit your event, a close-up magician to amaze you as you dine, or even a world-renowned Blue-Badge guide on hand to fascinate your guests with their knowledge of London as you go. Be sure to see our Entertainment pages for more ideas.
