Why Choose Narrowboat Hire with Floating Boater?

Located in the heart of London, the Regent’s Canal was built over 200 years ago, originally made to transport goods by narrowboat between the London Docklands and England’s industrial Midlands. Nowadays, these relaxing and scenic waters are used mainly for walking, sightseeing and canal boat hire in London, providing a peaceful waterway setting surrounded by stunning landscapes and beautiful wildlife in the heart of the capital.

Whatever your event, you can hire our canal and narrowboat at any time to suit you (up until midnight), making it the ultimate venue-with-a-difference for a range of events, including formal dining, corporate entertainment, parties, unique wedding venues and buffets. We can accommodate for between 2 and 80 guests, from sit-down-dining to reception set-ups. All our foods menus are crafted in-house, and our bars are fully stocked with an extensive wine list available.

The boat has a well stocked bar for cash or account service. We offer an extensive wine list and can cater for any special requests. We offer a variety of menus, ranging from buffets and finger food to full formal dining, where the chef will prepare your own choice of menu on board our canal boat, perfect for those special occasions such as wedding receptions and birthday parties.


Our canal boat has 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.  We guarantee the best canal boat party and corporate entertainment in London; please see our entertainment page for more details or contact the office on 020 7266 1066 for advice and availability.


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 for the exclusive use of your party, only your invited guests will be on board. On our canal boat you can safely relax in this knowledge as you cruise through Little Venice and Regent’s 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.
