Hi my name is Chris and I used to work for one of the top London boat hire companies on the river Thames in London owned by Chris Livett, in fact I still do a little work for him now, such as this informational River Thames boat blog.
The Thames is simply beautiful and I recommend anyone who has not yet done so to get out on a boat as soon as possible. Anyone who has been lucky enough will know what I am talking about. It is almost impossible to replicate that feeling as you glide past some of London’s most famous landmarks, glass of champagne in hand, gentle breeze on your face, almost sheilded from the hustle and bustle of Central London.
As well as working on organising private charters I also helped organise some of the most extreme filming and publicity stunts the River Thames has ever seen. One of the latest to be released is the Harry Potter movie where they fly up the river on their broom sticks.
When I first moved to London and started work on the river one of the older Watermen said to me, “Once you work on the Thames it never leaves you” and now 7 years later I can confirm he was right! It was one of the most exciting chapters of my life and I have many fond memories.
