Canal Boat Hire in London from The Floating Boater
... in the heart of London, where a peaceful waterway threads through a green parkland of grassy embankments and willow trees. Here heron and kingfisher share their territory with brightly painted houseboats and exclusive Georgian villas.
This is the Regents Canal, London, built some 200 years ago to transport goods between the London Docklands and England's industrial Midlands. Now these calm and scenic waters are used mainly for pleasure boating, walking and sightseeing.
The Prince Regent and Lapwing are available for boat charter all year round. For summer cruising we have large open foredecks, ideal for wedding receptions and summer birthday parties. For Christmas parties and meetings, the mahogany and oak timbered saloons have full central heating.
You can charter either boat, at any time to suit you (up to midnight), for formal dining, corporate entertainment, receptions and buffets, for between 12 and 80 guests.
Menus and Refreshments
Each boat has a well stocked bar for cash or account service. Please see the menu page for more details of Dinner, Luncheon, Buffets and Cocktail menus, and for our Wine List. We can also deal with special requirements. For special occasions such as birthday parties and wedding parties, the chef will prepare your own choice of menu on board.
Our boats have CD and iPod systems with a wide selection of music available. We will be delighted to book live music and entertainers, and advise on their suitability for your special event. Please see our entertainment page for more details.
With exclusive hire, our cruises provide the highest degree of privacy and discretion. In London's West End you cannot guarantee total control for your guests at public venues - hotels, restaurants, clubs etc.. When you hire The Prince Regent, or the Lapwing for the exclusive use of your party, only your invited guests will be on board. On the water you can safely relax in this knowledge as you cruise through Little Venice and Regents Park.
We hope this website gives you a taste of the 'Floating Boater Experience' and gives you some idea as to how you can celebrate your birthday party, wedding party, christmas party or office party in style on board 'The Prince Regent' or 'Lapwing'.
Please give us a call to arrange an appointment, and we'll be pleased to discuss the details of your corporate entertainment, product launch or other special party.
