August 2017's TLC events: what charterers had to say
From weddings and birthday parties to sightseeing trips and fine dining experiences, we hosted it all in style on the River Thames during August.
We've compiled a selection of reviews received during the month below, which have been collected from our official Reviews.co.uk page and direct feedback from charterers.
August also saw the exciting announcement of details for our New Year's Eve party on the Elizabethan, our only ticketed event of the year. As ever, guests will enjoy award-winning cuisine, first-class entertainment and unforgettable views of London's world-famous midnight fireworks as part of their luxurious five-hour cruise on the Thames.
We're also absolutely delighted to unveil our new 2017 Festive Menus, featuring a wide array of sumptuous dining options all guaranteed to ensure every guest fully enjoys their Christmas party at a venue that stands out from all others in London.
We have some availability across the fleet for upcoming dates, so we invite you to speak with our helpful and friendly Events Management Team and view our magnificent fleet should you wish to take to the river for your next event. Saturday viewings are still available until the end of September should you wish to visit on a weekend.

Sophie B | Wedding | Elizabethan | 5 stars
Thank you so much for all you did to make our wedding celebrations on the river go so smoothly - it really was a fabulous day and we were so lucky with the weather as it turned into a beautiful sunny evening. The boat looked incredible after Zoe and her crack team of bunting putter-uppers did their thing, and Hari’s pompoms were the icing on the cake. The band were brilliant and we certainly got our money’s worth out of Bespoke Productions as they went the extra mile to make sure everyone was happy with the setup. Asta and her team did a brilliant job and everyone commented on how delicious the food was.
It really was a day to remember for everyone there. We had a total ball, so thank you for all your help in making it happen - you were brilliant and we really appreciated all your help with our various requests. Thank you again for being so helpful and lovely throughout and compliments to all involved. We had the best party ever!
Abigail C | Corporate Event | Erasmus | 5 stars
Everything was arranged easily and effectively with Thames Luxury Charters, from the original enquiry through to the event itself. Everyone was extremely helpful and had our best interests at heart. Lucy Wade was my main point of contact throughout the organisation and she really seemed to put us first and helped to plan and arrange everything that eventually made the event such a success!
Edith I | Wedding | Elizabethan | 5 stars
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you; there are not enough words to say thank you! We and our guests had a phenomenal time during our wedding celebration on the Elizabethan. Very well done to you all, especially the captain, Tofeeq the chef and the entire catering team who contributed to the very beautiful memory of our wedding on the steamship. Thank you.
Rob S | Corporate Event | Edwardian | 5 stars
We had a brilliant night on Saturday. The staff were all amazing - manager, bar staff, DJ, boat crew and kitchen staff - so hats off to them all. The food was great also and everyone on board had a brilliant time; the DJ got the tone of the evening perfect. Thanks for all your efforts in making it a great experience for everyone.
Chris S | Wedding | Erasmus | 5 stars
From the first time we called to make an enquiry up to the event itself, everyone we encountered at TLC provided a friendly and efficient service. Claudia, who organised our event, was very flexible and happy to spend time talking us through options and ideas. She was also patient when we weren't sure what we wanted! On the day everyone working aboard the Erasmus was fantastic and the food was wonderful. We had a fantastic day and would not hesitate to recommend TLC to others.
Flight Club | Corporate Event | Erasmus | 5 stars
A massive thank you on behalf of the whole team at Flight Club for our event. We had an amazing time and everything ran very smoothly. The staff were very helpful and provided great service from the moment we got on the boat until the last person left.
Pat F | Sightseeing | Erasmus | 5 stars
We had never used the boat before and therefore didn't really know how it would work, but the staff were wonderful in adjusting the schedule and setting to meet our needs.
Karen W | Birthday | Elizabethan | 5 stars
High standards of facilities and cleanliness. Food was excellent and served really well. Prices at the bar were reasonable. There was flexibility around my requirements as opposed to imposing a set formula. Very friendly and helpful and an excellent DJ provided.
Lauren B | Wedding | Elizabethan | 5 stars
Excellent customer service from Louisa and aftercare from Jamie. Great communication, helpful ideas and just really relieved the stress and pressure from us! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you guys.
