The Annual Summer River Boat Party is one of the most popular events in the facilities industry’s calendar, seeing 400 people enjoying great hospitality and an unforgettable evening on the River Thames.

We'll sail east past the Tower of London, on past Canary Wharf and historic Greenwich, round the O2 peninsula and through the Thames Barrier before turning back for a Grand Finale. Just before we dock, Tower Bridge will be raised. London’s busy traffic will come to a halt. The Dixie Queen will pass through in a blaze of coloured lights and the applause of your guest.

This is a spectacle not to be missed. Who typically registers to attend? See previous attending Companies here.
