Hire a private picnic boat and set sail along London’s waterways, departing from Paddington (Little Venice) or Kingston. This is a self-drive boating experience where you’ll travel in a charming 8-person motorboat with a table in the middle, making it perfect for a picnic. No boating experience is needed as training will be given upon arrival. The boats run on an almost silent electric motor travelling at a casual 4mph, so sit back and relax. All guests will also get a free blanket!
Boat hire is available from Monday to Friday, from 9am to sunset and suitable for all ages. Dogs are also welcome.
From Paddington: Departing from Paddington set sail through Little Venice along the Regent’s Canal. You’ll have access to a beautiful part of London’s canal network, and will receive a route map to help you on your way.
From Kingston: Starting at Kingston Bridge, set sail along Kingston-upon-Thames. The route goes upriver past Hampton Court Palace and downriver to Teddington Lock.
Until 17th May: Up to 6 people per boat (guests must maintain social distancing guidelines throughout the experience)
18th May – onwards: Up to 8 people per boat (no restrictions)
