Your group can join a shared cruise on-board the Glass Room boat. These cruises operate to a set schedule and only use Embankment Pier.

Depending on your size, we can look at offering your group either private tables in the main area or semi-private areas.

You can choose from the regular cruise packages – Lunch, Afternoon Tea or Dinner and there is no extra cost to hire the private rooms.

Each member of your group will need to have the same package and we do ask that for Dinner you choose a set menu (the same 1 dish per course to be served to all guests, we will cater separately for vegetarian guests and any other dietary requirements.)

Chartering a boat exclusively for your event will definitely impress your guests.

The Thames Dinner Cruise aim is to find the perfect boat for your event. Being a broker means that we are not tied to a specific vessel or product. This allows us to search a wide range of boats on the Thames to find the best vessel for you.

Our extensive knowledge of all the boats on the Thames allows us to offer professional and unbiased advice. We work for you and spend time assessing your personal event requirements. We will only recommend a boat that fits your needs.

How private hire works?

Each boat charter is tailor-made to your requirements, so you can choose all the elements that go into building the perfect party. Below is a guide to get you started however please contact our Thames Dinner Cruise private party specialists on: 0203 551 3943 if you need any help.

The majority of parties like to hire the boat for 4 hours, this allows plenty of time for us to cruise past the main tourist sites on the River Thames, however the choice is entirely yours.

You may only want a 1 or 2-hour trip. Whether you are planning to cruise during the day or in the evening, we guarantee that the river Thames will not disappoint.

Hosting your event on a boat allows for the unique ability to embark and disembark from a Central London pier of your choice.

With over 20 piers along the River Thames between Putney and North Greenwich (O2) you will be spoilt for choice.

Each boat has its own range of menus produced by the in-house catering teams.

What would your group prefer? circulating canapés, finger buffet, seated buffet, three course lunch or dinner, freshly cooked BBQ on the outside deck? The choice is yours.

Every boat has a fully licensed bar on-board. Your guests can purchase their own drinks from the bar on a cash basis or you can choose to operate a prepaid account.

We all have our own individual rhythm, from the side steppers to the dad dancers to the all-out ravers. You need to think about something that will satisfy everyone in your group. The aim of entertainment – to create a fun, enjoyable experience for all.

We have a range of options including DJ’s, Discos, Karaoke and Live Bands, Magicians, Caricatures, Casino Tables, Games, Quizzes, Murder Mystery, Tour Guides and much more.

Now let’s get down to business, how much do you have to spend? As with any venue, our boats range in prices which in turn reflect the quality and standard.

There are the “cheap and cheerful” party boats that won’t break the bank, 3* rated boats that are above-average with good quality food and service, or the top quality luxury boats with excellent design and outstanding service.
