About Us

Setting sail in 1967, we're proud to be London's ORIGINAL organiser of the ticketed boat party. Launching on the London party scene as the 'Riverboat Shuffle', it went on to become known as  the 'Riverboat Disco Cruise' and then the 'Thames Party Boat Cruise'. More recently, it's now the  ORIGINAL 'London Boat Party'. Whilst our company name has changed with the businesses growth, from 'Floating Enterprises' to 'Mainstream Leisure' and now to 'Thames Boat Cruises & Events', we've always stayed consistent to our values' offering simplicity through excellent customer service and unrivaled value for money!

There's no Pirates 'ere! We appreciate that planning a party can be stressful and  hard work; whether it's a Hen Party, Stag Do, Birthday Party or Office Party. Asking people you may have never met to part with their money or commit can be tough, so we reward designated party planners with a free organiser's ticket. Consider this a 'thank you' for all your efforts! We also offer flexible payment options and group discounts, all with the view of making the booking process 'plain sailing'! The same applies to the numerous agents and suppliers that place their bookings with us, with total confidence.

Due to our market position as boat party experts, we're able to use the biggest fleet of London party boats and offer the biggest selection of dates for you to book. We run all year round and add more dates during the busy Christmas party season. Having owned boats ourselves, we have unrivaled relationships with many of the Captains and Crews, enabling us to offer the best price and incredible value!

The 'London Boat Party' is a brand of our parent company; Thames Boat Cruises & Events Limited - incorporating Mainstream Leisure. The Company has many ropes to its sails and offers a wide range of river cruise experiences on the Thames, in London and beyond (as far as Henley Upon Thames). From Lunch, Afternoon Tea and Dinner Cruises, to special calendar events such as Henley Royal Regatta, Exclusive Christmas Parties and New Year's Eve Celebrations. We also organise hundreds of bespoke exclusive private hire events each year, with boats ranging in capacity from 2 to 620, appealing to a range of budgets.

That’s why we’re the No. 1. Party Boat Organisers.
