Set up ready and completed as required, good communication with host(s) before and during booking. Lovely location that enabled us to continue the party even after we exited the boat. It was exactly what I wanted for my celebration and myself and my guests were very happy!

The toilet wasn’t the nicest thing in the world, but standard and satisfactory for a sweet little boat of this type.

Eli and Katy were great hosts to communicate with. They were very nice and accommodating. Great to talk to. Katy was super host on the day and her decoration skills were superb!! everyone loved it!! Location was amazing with the boat being at Little Venice, how nice for a hen-stag party. We had some issues regarding electricity in the boat, however Eli was very good at resolving them and taking appropriate action which is what you expect from a nice and caring host.

The decoration was wonderfully made and designed. Most of the things we needed were provided. The location was very good. And the transaction was so easy. Worth it for the money we spent.

The bluetooth speaker that was provided to us didn't last long as it was not fully charged.


Our boat is spacious and airy with panoramic windows all around.
With its sliding roof open you can enjoy a wonderful sunny day on board. The lounge can accommodate up to 12 seated guests or a stand-up cocktail party.

It has a neutral but elegant and fresh décor, perfect for any pop up events, supper clubs, workshops and private small parties and team away days. Our front deck is a very relaxing space with beautiful views.
You are welcome to bring your own food, cakes and drinks. the boat provides kitchen and toilet facilities on board but please note facilities on BOATS are very simple. You cant plug in your own kitchen appliances (no microwaves).

We specialise in bespoke themed parties for adults and children, so we are well equipped with props, costumes, fairy lights, table decor, candles. Please ask for party packages.

There is a sound system you can just plug in your phone or ipod connection.

The Boat moors through from west to East of London in some of the most stunning scenery on The Paddington Arms, Regent's Canal of the Grand Union Canal and River Lea (Little Venice, Camden, King's Cross, Angel, The Broadway Market, Victoria Park, Hackney Wick, Springfield Park, Limehouse). Please discuss the location when booking the venue (we move every two weeks).

It's perfect for small birthday parties, Brunch or Dinner Party, Bridal/Hen parties, baby showers and supper clubs.
