London Canal Boat Hire
Whatever you are celebrating, get your party afloat with Canal and River Cruises, on a London canal boat hire trip along the Grand Union and Regent’s Canals. Our services start with a Party Picnic cruise where you may bring your own food and drink and have your own picnic party on the way. We can also provide Afternoon Tea as an optional extra.
We welcome groups of up to 12 people on our exclusive London Canal Boat Hire Trips and offer tailor made cruises to suit your exact needs, but our most popular route is two or three hours from our home moorings in Little Venice (Paddington) to Camden Lock Market and back, where the Regent’s Canal offers one of the most varied and beautiful canal trips in England.
Lady A is the ideal choice if you are on a tight schedule during your visit to London as we can operate a personal sightseeing cruise to suit your exact needs and timescale. A one hour cruise from Little Venice to Camden is only one of many itineraries. For the more adventurous, let us take you through Camden locks to the London Canal Museum, a 120 minute trip from Little Venice through four locks! [More Sightseeing Boat Charter Trips]
Our boat, Lady A, is licensed to carry up to 12 passengers and when you charter the boat, the whole boat is yours. Ideal for groups, but when there’s just the two of you, we can sometimes offer a very special reduction in price – please ask for details and availability.
(And if you’re looking for a boat for more than 12 guests, please don’t hesitate to ask. We work closely with other operators who can accommodate parties of up to 80 and will be pleased to put you in contact!)
Open all hours!
We operate all year round from around 10am until around 10pm and our cruises are ideal for Birthday Parties, Hen Parties, Stag days (but not Stag nights!), family celebrations, business meetings, weddings and engagements, private parties and just a nice day out for a group of friends. When the sun shines most of our guests naturally head for the open sided front deck, and for those less pleasant days this can be enclosed with roll down side panels. On all days we provide a selection of rugs to help keep the draughts out and in winter we turn up the heating to keep you nice and warm while still enjoying that exciting outdoor feeling!
Bring Your Own Bottle!
We don’t charge corkage so please feel free to bring your own beers and wines on any of our party picnic canal cruises or afternoon tea cruises. We regret that this offer is not available on public or sightseeing boat trips.
Although our London Canal Boat Trips are normally private for you and your guests only, we do occasionally offer public boat trips. Phone us for last minute availability.

Last Minute Bookings?
The weather has become somewhat unpredictable in the last few years. Maybe you thought it was going to rain so didn’t book and then it turned out nice? We can often arrange last minute bookings so it doesn’t hurt to ask – even on the day…. come rain or shine!
As always, telephone 07899 800856 for the very latest information and availability.
