William B


Whether seeking to entertain clients, have a celebratory staff party, or give your wedding or birthday party guests an event to remember, the William B offers a high standard of quality and versatility. Autumn is one of the best times to enjoy London from the river. Come onboard!


Inside, the fully upholstered teak panelled entrance hall with its polished brass wall lights and handrails makes an impressive introduction. A proper bar provides a full list of beers, wines and spirits, and the kitchen produces exceptional food, often organic and always home cooked, from our fantastic chef Skye Coxe.



Clay Shooting cruises booked for October and November 2018 on William B will receive 20% off the charter fee. Use code: ’20ON!’ CLICK HERE to email your enquiry for a quote today.


Upstairs you can enjoy perhaps the best view from any charter boat in London. A 360 degree view is possible from the lush garden feel created with quality artificial grass, feature plants, and garden furniture.  It is a lovely place to be whether throughout the year. Autumn sunsets are perhaps the best of all the year,  and even in Winter event guests happily wrap up warm and take in the London sights gliding by.

The deliciously welcoming teak panelled entrance hall leads on to a modern and contemporary stateroom complete with high-quality carpets, sleek and polished wooden flooring and fresh, clean lines.The space is wholly flexible for large seated dining groups, or more informal drinks and canape parties.


There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a Thames cruise with some good food and drink, in fact it’s simply one of the best London experience. But, you can do more if you have the inclination, and the William B is a great venue for doing more. You can clay shoot from the roof deck, and our new laser clay-shooting will be on the menu soon too! Or enjoy wine-tasting experiences, casino tables and what we are sure are the best floating DJs in London!
