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. Within this website you will find information on all of the boats that are available to charter on the River Thames in London. As one might expect, the quality of the fixtures and fittings therefore varies enormously, making some boats ideal for casual events and others more appropriate for corporate functions or more luxurious events. In order to make the Thames Boat Hire process as simple as possible, we have categorised all of the boats into distinct categories.
