Golden Flame

Spread over two decks, MV Golden Flame's strength is her versatility; the upper deck's saloon with bar and DJ booth leads out to the sundeck, ideal for summer barbecues, moonlight cocktails or simply enjoying the sun and sights of the Thames; whilst the lower saloon with its second bar and access to the galley is perfect for eating or dancing. Uniquely among our boats the lower saloon of the Golden Flame can be shut for smaller, more intimate events, preventing your guests from spreading out too much and keeping the party atmosphere alive.

Both spacious saloons have fixed bench seating and fully stocked bars, as well as space for a DJ, band, fun casino, cabaret or other entertainment. MV Golden Flame also boasts a full service galley enabling our professional caterers to serve you almost anything from canapés to a carvery lunch in style and comfort.

In line with recent legislation the interiors of all our party boats are non-smoking, however smoking is currently permitted on the large open deck of the Golden Flame.

Whatever your occasion, selecting the Golden Flame as your venue will ensure that your and your guests enjoy all the sights and sounds that a fantastic function on the Thames can offer.
