Sail in a historic wooden boat from Tower Pier towards Greenwich and back. See Tower Bridge opening for you as you go. Built in 1923, this boat is one of the few remaining boats of it’s kind left in the world.
This is a truly special and unique way to explore the city. Sail past The Tower of London, City Hall, Canary Wharf and down towards Greenwich Pier and the National Maritime Museum then returning back to Tower Pier.
There is a bar below deck in case you would like to buy some drinks. Cream tea with a hot drink will be available to buy on our afternoon voyages. Hot soup (vegetarian option available) will be available to buy on our evening voyage.
Warm and waterproof clothes in case it’s cold or wet when you go out on deck. We strongly recommend guests wear sensible, non-slip shoes, and no stilettos.
Please be aware that the Vessel is an adapted early 20th century wooden cargo barge & that those aboard are required to exercise a correspondingly higher degree of responsibility for their own safety, as there are many hazards on-board, for example, some restriction of headroom, steepness of stairways, multi level trip hazards both on and below deck etc. Guests in particular who need to be aware of the structure of the vessel are the very young, elderly guests or those of restricted mobility.
You will need to arrive on time for this event as the boat has fixed arrival and departure times. Our exact turning round point in the Greenwich area can vary depending on the tides on the day.
Once booked all our events are non refundable and non changeable due the fixed costs we incur in organising them. The minimum age criteria is 6 years and over. Please let us know if you are planning on bringing a child so we can ensure we have enough junior lifejackets.
