Dixie Queen takes centre stage alongside Gordon Ramsay on MasterChef USA

Viewers of the hugely popular cooking programme MasterChef USA got a treat from the Thames recently.

During the London specials of the 10th season, the remaining contestants gathered on Butler's Wharf Pier on a gloriously sunny day to await their upcoming challenge from chef Gordon Ramsay. After marvelling at the unique sights our pier offers, the contestants spotted Ramsay and his fellow judges making their grand entrance through Tower Bridge aboard our Dixie Queen.

The episode was broadcast in the US in September, but you can watch the full scenes filmed on the Thames here:

About the Dixie Queen

With capacity for up to 620 guests, Dixie Queen is London's largest luxury passenger vessel. Her proportions set the atmosphere of a ship rather than a large boat, while her flexible layout allows for virtually any type of event to be held on board. This includes everything from corporate events and Christmas parties through to product launches or a luxury taxi service for celebrity chefs!

And contrary to one contestant's beliefs, you don't have to be the Queen or Gordon Ramsay to have Tower Bridge open for you; any Dixie Queen charter that travels towards or from Tower Pier requires a bridge lift. This iconic sight never fails to impress each and every guest on board.

More information about Dixie Queen, including pictures and video, can be seen on her fleet page.
