Embark on your very own party down the Regent's Canal aboard the Canal Party Club! Take a dreamy summers day cruise by hiring out this party canal boat for you and your friends. Having done this trip ourselves, this comes highly recommended for an extremely fun day out and a beautiful ride taking in the landmarks along the Regent's Canal. If you are looking to hire a canal boat in London then look no further. 

The boat is all yours (apart from the captain), you can bring your own booze, food and music as there is an ipod socket to soundtrack your party along the way! This two hour cruise leaves from King's Cross, Granary Square steps and travels to Camden (bottom lock), through the locks and along to the stunning 200 year old underground Islington Tunnel which is a marvel and has to be experienced. In the event of rain or cold weather the boat has transparent covers and a small heater. The route ends at King's Cross, Granary Square steps.

If you are looking to book for a larger group, you can book Canal Party Cruise - this takes up to 42 people.

We had the best day ever!! Captain pat was great so was Dave, the crew. We took party food and drink on board and we had a playlist which we played through the speakers on the boat! I couldn't recommend it enough!! Katie visited Canal Boat Party on 04 Mar 2016

I booked the boat for my sister in law's hen do and we had the best afternoon ever! Pat the Captain was amazing - super friendly and very accommodating. Was perfect that we were able to take drinks and nibbles onto the boat too. Would definitely recommend and book again for a similar party!

Booked this for my birthday for 12. We had a great time! The boat was decorated really nicely and had a great vibe, the staff Pat and Mylo were amazing! So friendly and easy going. Very easy to plug in and play your own music and with all your own booze and food too! Great value at £20 each and would definitely recommend. We will be back! eleanorodunsi visited Canal Boat Party on 11 Jan 2016

Thanks so much! We had a wonderful time! There were 10 of us and we had loads of room. We went on the evening cruise and it wasn't cold at all even though it was April. Beautiful views, sturdy cover, speakers for our music and even ice buckets for the prosecco!! Would go again.

Did it for my 30th birthday and had THE BEST time ever!! There were 11 of us and didn't feel overcrowded. Going through the Islington tunnel was an amazing experience and will stick with me forever. We were unlucky with the weather but the boat was covered and didn't bother us at all. Dan visited Canal Boat Party on 09 Mar 2016

Hiya, just booked on and we can't wait! Couldn't see a spot to ask questions so hope it's OK to ask here. We're going in the evening - are there any heaters? Also did I read that there's a karaoke machine? Thanks for any help in advance! Geraldine visited Canal Boat Party on 18 Mar 2016

Reply from Canal Party Club

Hi Geraldine, thank you for your booking and glad you're looking forward to it! We will pick you up at Granary Square, King's Cross, and the drop off point will be Islington. We have covers on the boat in the event of rain and a small heater but most groups don't use it as they are usually warm enough without. We don't have a karaoke machine but we do have speakers which attach to any phone, iPod or iPad. Kind regards, and we look forward to meeting you on 30th April!

We hired the canal boat for a work Christmas party. The boat, crew and experience was fantastic. We got take away kebabs for everyone and drank Champagne while cruising down the Regents canal, before getting dropped in Islington for our night out. josephine visited Canal Boat Party on 19 Oct 2015

Brilliant day! The weather was fantastic for the 31st oct and the crew's Halloween costumes were amusing. Did this as part of birthday celebrations and it was lovely to spend some quality time with just a few people and of course our own supply of alcohol. Highly recommended. sheena visited Canal Boat Party on 24 Apr 2015

Got away on a boat for my birthday with mates this year and it has to have been the best one yet. (can't remember her name) but our boat driver was lovely and it's great being able to play your own music! Heard rumours that there's a bigger boat too so definitely doing to get involved next year with some more friends!

Reply from Canal Party Club

Thanks for your review, James - the skipper is called Denise. Glad you enjoyed it, and yes there will be a bigger boat from April next year - hope to see you again!
07 Sep 2015 by

I organised the canal boat for a birthday party, It was absolute amazing and faultless. Denise and Barbara were extremely accommodating and let us take our own food, alcohol and put on our own music. It was raining the day we went on the canal but the shelter is very sturdy and we didn't feel cold or wet. We have an incredible time and would definitely recommend this to anyone that wanted to go on the regent's canal. Tip: Chose the Islington Tunnel Route as the tunnel is extraordinary.

Hi Louise - sorry my reply to your review took a while, but I've just become aware of how to do this! Glad you enjoyed your trip, and thank you for such a lovely review!
26 Aug 2015 by

This Summer was an absolute belter weather wise so i had to lock this in with my mates. It's a decent amoutn of money, but between us it worked out alright and for a day in the sun on the canals with your own music and mates - well worth it
18 Aug 2015 by

I did this with colleagues for a corporate day out, and we had a great time. Denise was fantastic, and very welcoming. This is the second time I have done this trip, and I would definitely do it again!

Hi Jessica, thank you for your review - am so glad that you have enjoyed this so much that you've been twice! Hope to see you again next year.

We did this for my birthday on Friday and it was one of the best birthdays ever. Was so nice to do something different for a change and all my friends said they had a great time. Would definitely book again for another special occasion or even just for a cool place to have pre drinks.

Really fun evening. We did this for my friends hen do and it was truely a great experiance. We took on take away pizzas for food which was well received by the hen. The tunnel experiance was amazing.
06 Jul 2015 by

One of the best afternoons I've had in years. So much fun, relaxing and just beautiful scenery. Fantastic organizers and well run. Just booked it again for my birthday in a few months.
26 Apr 2015 by

One of the best nights out I have had in a long time. The people who operate the boat were really sweet and easy going. It was beautiful on the water and it was an awesome experience. I can't recommend it highly enough!!!!
19 Apr 2015 by

A five star day out on the Regent's Canal. They picked us up in King's Cross and took us on a serene trip. We brrought out our drink and a picnic, and there are facilities for music if you want a bit of a soundtrack. Our boat had karaoke too, which I can't say the locals seemed too happy about but we loved it! Would be ideal on a hot summer's day
02 Apr 2015 by

Booked for my 25th birthday and we had a blast! Going through the tunnels was amazing and while experience was really unique. The driver and host on board were easy going and wanted us to have fun. Would recommend 100%
30 Mar 2015 by

Booked for a girls trip out last summer and we had a wonderful day! You are free to take this in whatever direction you choose, with yourr own music, drinks and food. The team behind the event were a pleasure to organise with and the weather was lovely. 5 stars in every department
13 Mar 2015 by

We booked this for a combined stag / hen do, and what a great idea it turned out to be! A couple of our friends brought buckets full of beer, there was a cooler for the wine and going up and down Regent's canal was great fun. The ladies running the boat were very relaxed, and were quite happy to let us crack on with enjoying ourselves as they worried about navigating the canal. Being right by Kings Cross meant it was easy to get to and we had plenty of options afterwards. One of our party was running about 30 minutes late, but the team were very accommodating, picking him up as we went through the middle of our figure-eight circuit. Highly recommended.
09 Mar 2015 by

Booked this for my husbands party last year and i'm still praising it to all my friends now. totally affordable as you'd expect to pay up to £500 for some bar bookings for a group that size. team behind the boats is lovely too
06 Mar 2015 by

we only had 8 people come on our boat but it was still such a bargain for what it was, don't think I paid more than £40 for the whole thing including drink. really nice not to have to share the boat with anyone else and our driver was hilarious, will be booking in again when the weather gets a bit nicer!
27 Feb 2015 by

Really fun! Great hosts. Superb way to start off a stag party. I'd couldn't recommend this highly enough. The views were great and we we got what we expected and more!
24 Feb 2015 by

This isn't a personal experience as I missed out but friends of mine have done this and this is definitely my plan for my birthday in summer. Looks incredible and my friends said it was a real day drinking fest. Music, booze and sun if you're lucky - sign me up!
17 Feb 2015 by

Now I'm not usually one for leaving reviews but felt I had to create an account to leave some comments on this! This is an excellent idea for a summer party; they pick you up on Regent's Canal close to King's Cross and you drift down the waterway, food and drinks to hand and your own music playing loud. Really good fun
16 Feb 2015 by

Confess I haven't been on this myself, but friends of mine and have and I can only spread their gospel about how much they loved it. Really great concept so can't wait to hit thi up come summer
12 Feb 2015 by

This is perfect for a fun, inexpensive day out with a small group of friends. We booked the boat for a birthday party in August last year and we had great weather. It's a serene experience to start, and then after a bit of food, booze and music it can turn a bit more lively. You can really take this one and make what you want of it!
11 Feb 2015 by

couldn't recommend these guys more, had them last summer for my birthday and was chuffed. had a lot of mates worried about the money for it but it only came to about £30 each including our booze which is really cheap considering the fun we had. definitely doing it again this coming summer
09 Feb 2015 by

totally agree with the guy below, really good value for money if you think about the experience you're getting and it's perfect for an average size group of mates. Had a wee bit if rain but there was a canopy section so there was no problems
06 Feb 2015 by

probably the most value for money boat in london to be honest, didn't come to much more than £200 for all of us, where most other companies can charge up to £500 for 12 people. made even better by the fact we could choose the booze that we took. bit cloudy on the day but such a laugh nonetheless
06 Feb 2015 by

This is perfect for a summer party! A nice chilled out cruise down the canal, and you can bring your own food, drink and music so you can pretty much set any vibe that you want. We got a bit rowdy as el vino flowed but the guy in charge didn't seem too fussed, and they dropped us off right by a canal-side pub after wards
06 Feb 2015 by

went on this trip with a load of mates late last summer for my birthday and it was a really cool experience. Beats any daytime drinking antics i've done before!
05 Feb 2015 by

Had the best time ever on this boat trip! Never thought I'd find myself cruising the canals of London on a summers day but this is definitely everything it says it is and more! Booze, music and sun (if you're lucky).
16 Jan 2015 by

Booked on design my night's word and really enjoyed the whole day. Really relaxed, chilled out cruise down Regents Canal and if its a nice summer's day it is perfect. They're happy for you to take control of the music and it is bring you own food and drink
16 Jan 2015 by

a really one of way to experience London. We were really lucky to have good weather on our canal trip last year so everything was beautiful, chilled and really good fun.Definitely a recommendation for this summer!
12 Jan 2015 by

Came here for our work summer party last year and it set the platform for a really fun day out. The guy in charge was really friendly and was clearly not bothered about letting us crank up the volume and play all kinds of party tunes. You are taken down a really stunning part of the Canal which is fantastic, especially if it's a nice sunny day and people are out and about. Bring your own food, drink and music and make a big day of it; there's plenty of really good canal side pubs you can stop at to carry on the party afterwards
12 Jan 2015 by

sorted a suprise party for my BF with these guys last year and it absolutely blew him away, lady driving the boat (can't remember her name) made us feel so welcome, and we caught such a lovely day too x
06 Jan 2015 by

Forgot to leave a review on this, a few months late but hope it helps some people anyway! This company are amazing, had a few friends coming down for the summer and wanted something fun to do, SPOT ON. Such a laugh
