Looking For a Thames Party Boat to Hire?

What could be a better idea for a summer party than a Thames party boat? When it comes to London venue hire there are plenty of options out there. We particularly love out floating venues, so why not host a party on the Thames? We’re big fans of this idea because it gives you a completely unique setting for a party, and completely unique views over the city too. A luxury Thames boat hire will show you a side to London that you very rarely see, travelling right through the centre, between the two banks and their famous landmarks. Party venues in London don't get much better than these.
