Corporate, Luxury & Party Boat Hire

London is unique, as there are two great ways to see the city, one is from the air and the other is from the River.  The River Thames is 215 miles long, making her the longest river in England and the second largest in the UK.  So it’s understandable that there are a LOT of boats for you to choose from.

At Thames Boat Hire we specialise in helping you to find the most appropriate boat for your event on the River Thames.  We are here to help simplify the process and narrow down your search to 2 or 3 options, ensuring that we find the best boat for you.

“I wanted to pass on thanks for helping us make last week’s General Assembly one of the best ever held.”
