The River Thames is the perfect venue all year

Researching London venues for your next corporate event? There are plenty to choose from, but the most obvious and changeable location – the River Thames – is often forgotten about.

Setting your event on the Thames provides an ever-changing landscape. Your guests can relax and admire London’s backdrop, from Battersea Power Station to the Houses of Parliament. Each season brings with it an individual look. Hiring a boat on the Thames can be an ideal venue, whatever the time of year.​

Light up the winter

Just because it’s winter, it doesn’t mean you can’t charter a boat for your event. The darker evenings bring more time to take in the views, especially the spectacular city skyline when it’s fully illuminated. Add to the seasonal experience with some warming drinks, wintery cocktails and delicious food.

The blossoming spring

If you’re considering London boat hire in the spring then your guests are in for a treat. They’ll be able to experience the Thames as it shimmers in the spring sunshine. With new beginnings in mind, it’s a great opportunity for team building or networking events and there will be limited distractions from day-to-day work.

Enjoy the summer sun

Summer is traditionally a busy time on the Thames, with an influx of tourists using the sightseeing facilities. However, there’s still time to create a stunning corporate event on the river. You can choose to run a daytime through evening event, which provides the opportunity to get the business side of things completed during the day. After the hard work, your guests can enjoy a lively cocktail party or disco cruise after hours.

The autumn glow

Life on the Thames doesn’t come to a halt in September and an Indian summer brings much to see and do along the river. There’s a chance to book a pre-Christmas social event or plan next year’s work in a more relaxed setting.
