Now the warm sunny weather has arrived a charter on a Thames party boat provides a pleasant fresh and invigorating environment amongst the busy parks, river banks and stuffy streets of London.
The River Thames calves it’s way right through the heart of the bustling City. It provides a large and uncluttered arena for London’s boats to cruise, providing space from the crowds on the embankments, parks and adjacent streets.
The Thames generally has more air movement as well making it a much cooler fresher and more pleasant place to relax. You can unwind along the many embankment bars and restaurants, but to really get the full effect nothing beats a Thames boat charter. There are few more pleasant options in the City to escape the air conditioned offices, stuffy streets and noisy overcrowded parks.
If you are looking to charter a boat on the Thames in London this summer make sure you consider all the elements to ensure you and your guests have a perfect charter – no matter what the British weather does on the day!
The summertime presents many alternative interesting options for your party boat hire. With a little more warmth and longer evenings popular choices could be; to have a barbecue on the boat instead of a more standard buffet or seated meal, drinks – Pimms instantly springs to mind, but cocktails are also very popular. With the longer warmer evenings guests can enjoy the outer decks so make sure the Thames boat you hire has plenty of outside space for your party size. Some boats even have opening roof sections so you can dance under the stars as the night wears on safe in the knowledge that bad weather can be quickly shut outside!
The key thing to get the most from your summer Thames boat charter is to ensure you have the right boat for your numbers and desired party. There is no point selecting a small boat with no outside space if everyone is going to want to be outside, similarly a small boat with less inside space could be equally frustrating if it is cold or wet. Make sure you view before booking your Thames party boat and really a minimum of 3 boats is advisable.
