There's something magical about London at Christmas time; festive cheer is spread from every shop, restaurant, bar and boat. Dusk seems to come early just so we can turn on the lights and there really is no better place to soak up the atmosphere than from one of our Thames party boats.
Our pleasure boats, Golden Star, Golden Sunrise, Golden Flame and Golden Jubilee are available for private hire for between 40 and 240 people and we offer several options to help you celebrate the festive season with us:
- Exclusive hire of one of our fantastic boats allowing you to create your party your way.
- Christmas boat party packages with per person pricing that can be used as is, or as a starting point from which to build your individual event.
- Alternatively we can help you put together your own bespoke party, ensuring you a party to remember.
If you have a smaller group and are interested in buying tickets for a shared Christmas Party onboard one of our boats this is also something we can offer - Christmas Party Tickets

Post Christmas Boat Hire
We understand that some of you are so busy helping others enjoy the festive season that you can't celebrate yourself until after Boxing Day. To ensure you don't miss out we offer a 10%-15% boat hire discount on Christmas boat parties booked throughout January 2018. Unfortunately the boats won't be decorated anymore (although I'm sure you'll have seen enough tinsel by then anyway) but we can still provide Christmas fare for you, or you can choose from our varied selection of standard menus. Simply quote the reference LATECHRISTMAS when booking to receive your discount.
