Looking to hire a canal boat in London? We can vouch personally for the Canal Boat Party, which gives you the freedom to host your own private event while you cruise along the beautiful waterways of the Regent’s Canal.

Offering something a bit different to your typical London boat party, SupKiko is a fun and relaxed activity that anybody can have a crack at.

Can we just take a sec to appreciate those views? You couldn't ask for a more stunning and unique location to host a private boat party than aboard the Tatts. Permanently moored on the Embankment, it's an iconic spot in which to host a private function for groups anywhere between 40 and 220 in size. Promising great hospitality and a cracking range of cocktails alongside that beauty of a vantage point, head for drinks on the deck during the summer or take things inside for more boozing and merriment during the cooler months.
Another of London’s best river boat parties goes down at Bar & Co, the late-night party bar moored at Temple Pier. The boat can host up to 130 and the licence can extend to 3am, while the front row views of the London Eye and Big Ben speak for themselves. Bar & Co is a bar, restaurant and nightclub all at once, and can be hired out for private parties, corporate events and stag or hen nights in the heart of buzzing central London.
