About this room

A spectacular 50 capacity sailing barge, ‘The Will’ was built in 1925 as one of the four largest steel sailing barges of its time. Steeped in history, this vessel is full of traditional nautical flair with its Mahogany decked interiors and 30 metre masts.

Delight your guests by sailing under Tower Bridge, which opens for Sailing Barge Will every time it glides through. Whether it’s sipping Prosecco on deck, taking in the wonderful views of London whilst you gently drift down the Thames, or enjoying a three course fine dining menu downstairs in the atmospheric wood-lined saloon, with its authentic fireplace and romantic charm; Sailing Barge Will offers a river experience like no other - the perfect vessel to impress!
