Birthday Party Venue Hire

Birthday & Anniversary Parties on board Thames Sailing Barges!

A really unusual and memorable venue for your special occasion

Our Sailing Barges can be hired as a party venue for your birthday or anniversary party.  Your family and friends will love the experience of being onboard these wonderful vessels at either Maldon’s historic Quay, Ipswich’s Old Customs House or perhaps in London on the River Thames with Tower Bridge in the background! You might chose a daytime river sail for up to 50 guests or hire a vessel tied up at the Quayside for an evening party for up to 80 guests. Perhaps have a theme to the party or add entertainment such as a band or disco. Choose from a selection of buffet and seated meals prepared freshly on board by our in-house catering company. There is a full bar on board each vessel which can be run in a variety of ways to suit you.
