The six steps to creating an unforgettable experience on the River Thames

Carving its way through the very heart of our great capital city, the Thames is London's most famous asset.

There is simply no better way to view London's beautiful sights than from your own private vessel. Picture gliding past some of London's most famous landmarks illuminated in all their glory, glass of Champagne in hand, while surrounded by your friends and family.

We want to share our love of the iconic River Thames with as many people as possible. With this in mind, below you will see the six simple steps to creating a special occasion in the heart of London with Thames Luxury Charters.

1) Enquire with a dedicated event coordinator

Arranging any event with TLC is a straightforward and worry-free experience from the moment you enquire.

A dedicated event coordinator will take some details from you and put together an entirely bespoke charter proposal. For the best planning service, share your aspirations and budget from the very beginning, which will allow your coordinator to recommend the most appropriate solutions to meet and exceed your requirements on board.

2) Meet your event coordinator and view your vessel

Ensuring you visit our luxury fleet or chosen vessel will help you gain a real feel for the venue and how your event will look when it all comes together. Discussing your aspirations with your event coordinator face-to-face will also be helpful in planning details you'd like on board, such as food, drink, decorations and entertainment.

3) Make a no obligation provisional booking

This is the best way to avoid disappointment with your chosen dates and can be done at any stage in the enquiry process. We can keep the date held for you for seven days, which gives you time to consider and finalise your options before committing.

4) Submit your booking confirmation and deposit

In order to confirm your charter we require a completed booking form and a 50% deposit of the boat hire. Once your event coordinator has your completed booking form, we will raise an invoice based on your requirements and provide instructions on how to make payment. This secures your booking.

5) Craft your bespoke event, including food, drink and entertainment

Our wide range of bespoke services means every charter is unique, including yours. To help produce a menu that's perfect for everyone on board, food and wine tastings are available. We also work with highly respected DJs, live bands, magicians and many more performers, each of whom provide the perfect accompaniment to your event.

Along with hospitality, every event is lit up with beautiful finishing touches to make it more personal and original than you ever imagined. This can include lighting, stunning centerpieces, flowers, balloons, photo booths, props or specialist additions for any themed event.

Whatever your aspirations, your dedicated coordinator will be with you throughout the entire planning process, ensuring your one-of-a-kind event is easy, stress-free and fun to organise.

6) Enjoy your event in the heart of London!

Once all details are finalised and confirmed, it's time to sit back and relax until your event. On the day, you will be warmly welcomed aboard by a professional, uniformed and friendly crew for an occasion you'll never forget.
