TLC Memories: A jewel of an evening aboard P.S. Elizabethan
The beauty and flexibility of the Thames Luxury Charters fleet means we are able to host virtually any kind of event on board.
Throughout our 25 years on London's majestic river, we've always believed the heart and spirit of an event comes to life when charterers put their unique stamp on proceedings. This ensures each and every occasion we host is truly special to guests from the moment they step aboard.
It's why every client is assigned a dedicated Event Coordinator from the moment they enquire, who helps create and tailor events to bespoke requirements. Furthermore, an experienced Function Manager is present throughout on the day to ensure flawless delivery of every detail.
To help give you a greater idea of the experience you can enjoy with Thames Luxury Charters, we are delighted to share with you some of our special event memories. Here, we take a look at a grand mess dinner which took place on Elizabethan following an exclusive occasion ashore.

What did they experience on board?
Attendees were warmly welcomed aboard Elizabethan, beautifully decorated with floral displays, by our uniformed and professional crew. Once guided through to her capacious upper deck, they enjoyed a Champagne reception and exquisite canapés including cajun chicken and sweetcorn fritter and Thai vegetable rice rolls.
After a gentle cruise down river from Westminster, passing sights such as the London Eye and Shakespeare's Globe, guests stopped over at Tower Pier for an exclusive occasion: a private tour of the Tower of London's magnificent Jewel House.
Meanwhile, final preparations for the evening's mess dinner on Elizabethan were made, including the stunning silver centerpieces from the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers which adorned the long tables.
Four military drummers then escorted guests from the Tower of London back to the vessel for the rest of the cruise. The evening's menu consisted of our sumptuous Signature Dinner, with dishes including fillet beef with rosti potato; charred squash, kale and wild rice risotto; pan fried Cornish skate and our ever popular dessert trio selection.
Following the conclusion of dinner and speeches, bespoke cheese boards and decanters of fine port were passed among the guests, to the left of course! A toast was raised to a fabulous evening both on and off the river as Elizabethan cruised back to Tower Pier for the final disembark.
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for helping us organise the event! It was a great success and we have received really positive feedback. Your team were very helpful, polite and professional. It was a pleasure working with them and yourself."
