About Us

We have over 30 years' experience operating party boats on the River Thames. Our entire team takes great pride in our history and connections to the Thames, which in some cases spans many generations. It is because of this expertise, skill, commitment and enthusiasm that we can make your time on the river both a memorable and a safe one.

We have a fleet of modern, well-equipped vessels that are available for hire throughout the year. They are all fully heated, so it doesn’t matter how cold it is outside, your guests will always be warm enough.

Our largest boat can comfortably host up to 250 people, but if your event is going to be more intimate, your party can be as small as you like. Even if you want to really impress that special someone in your life by taking them on their very own cruise, our friendly staff will be very happy to help you out.

Everything your party needs

We can provide catering facilities, boat decorations, flower arrangements, fun casino tables, DJs and much more. Just let us know what you need.

We have pickup and departure points on the Thames spanning London from East to West - from Gravesend, to the O2 Dome, Greenwich Pier, Canary Wharf Pier, Tower of London, Crown Pier, Westminster Pier, Chelsea Harbour, Putney Pier and Kew.

Health & Safety

All our vessels are equipped with up-to-date, life-saving and fire-fighting systems. They are all subjected to annual and interim inspections by The Marine Coastguard Agency in order to be awarded a passenger carrying certificate. We are also licensed by London River Services Ltd to operate from all London Piers under the Transport for London (TFL) umbrella.

Scheduled services

Thames River Sightseeing offers hop-on hop-off services throughout Central London and further afield to Greenwich and the Thames Barrier. Our boats are also used as part of the daily scheduled sightseeing services from Westminster Pier.
