The first reviews from the Christmas party season are in!

It feels like only yesterday we were extolling the virtues of summer on the River Thames, but already the Christmas party season is well and truly upon us.

We have been so happy to once again warmly welcome guests aboard our festively decorated fleet for their unforgettable celebrations. There’s simply nothing like enjoying the most wonderful time of year on the River Thames, with London’s ever-changing backdrop providing enchanting settings for your gathering.

It is always a pleasure to hear from charterers following their event and we have compiled a selection of direct feedback we have received in recent weeks below.

We still have availability for December and in the new year, so if you would like to know more about what you can create on the River Thames, we warmly invite you to get in touch with our experienced and friendly Events Management Team. They would be delighted to help and will be with you at every step of your journey with us. Rest assured we continue to follow all safety guidelines, allowing you to fully relax and simply enjoy your event.

Deloitte | Company Christmas Party | Elizabethan

I would like to thank you and your team for helping to organise the party in a short amount of time. Everyone had a wonderful night, from set up to the final steps of leaving the boat it could not have gone more perfect. The amount of compliments everyone had from the event was staggering and the staff on the boat were amazing.

Stephenson Harwood LLP | Company Christmas Party | Edwardian

We had a fantastic evening – could not thank Simon, Steven and the rest of the staff enough! They made sure the night ran smoothly and were constantly on hand to help with anything we needed. Thank you very much!

Phillip Jeffries UK | Company Christmas Party | Edwardian

Just wanted to send you an email to say a HUGE thank you and let you know that we had a fantastic party aboard the Edwardian last night. The crew and staff were all brilliant and so accommodating, nothing was too much trouble.

The food was excellent and everyone really enjoyed it. Our team member with the chilli intolerance was genuinely touched that you had gone to so much trouble on her behalf. Our vegan couple said they had loads of great options to choose from too. The DJ played great music and the magician was superb.

I think it’s fair to say that this was probably the best Christmas party Phillip Jeffries UK has had to date, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your company to anyone thinking of booking with you. Please pass my thanks on to your whole team for making our party such a success. Right from my very first enquiry you have provided amazing customer service, and you are an absolute credit to your company.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help in organising the trip on Saturday. It went fantastically well, Noora was wonderful, the food was absolutely delicious (and plenty of it!) and the whole team was so friendly and welcoming. Thank you – it was just what we wanted and the perfect venue to get our family together after so long.

Naomi L | Private Party | Edwardian

We would recommend TLC without question. The Edwardian was the perfect size for us and we lucked out with an amazingly sunny October day so were able to make the most of the top deck which had deckchairs and cushions out for us. The staff and service on the boat were exceptional and we had canapés which were delicious.

We dealt mostly with Plamena before the day and she was brilliant; so professional and helpful and responded quickly to answer all our (many!) questions. We had lots of dietary requirements which they were able to cater to with no fuss at all. Everything was perfect – thank you so much!

Amy B | Private PartyEdwardian

I want to say the biggest thank you to you, Simon, Noora, Scott and the barman for everything and for making Saturday such a huge success. It was amazing and everyone had the best time; the person whose party it was said she had the best day of her life, so thank you! Nobody could believe how smart the boat was.

David M | Birthday PartyEdwardian

A big thank you for Saturday night. The whole evening went like clockwork and everything was perfect. The staff were all amazing, the food was amazing, and so was the band. We couldn’t have wished for a better experience – even the weather was kind and plenty of people spent a lot of time upstairs admiring London at night. All of our guests have commented specifically on the food, saying how good it was.
