Amazing 40th Birthday Boat Party!!

“I hired the King Edward back in November last year to celebrate my 40th Birthday. 50 people attended from 7pm – 12am, picking up at Westminster Pier, cruising down to Battersea Park to see the fireworks and then down to Greenwich and back again.
It was a huge success and a lot of the guests said it was the best party they had ever been to. It was super fun with an excellent DJ, well stocked and run bar, loads of outside space and an amazing crew. Thanks so much Jake, Lee and Gary.”

Excellent Evening in Every Way

Great boat, great crew, great sights, great size, good food and bar – no complaints! Affordably priced compared to the rest. Ideal for groups of 40-80.

Customer From California

Superb retirement party

“Organised this several months ago for a party for about 20 colleagues. We wanted about 5-6 hours and Lee suggested a cruise from central London up to Putney, back down to Greenwich and return. Any fears that this might be too long on board were soon dispelled. Very efficiently organised, Prosecco and delicious canapés on arrival, excellent BBQ and Lee discreetly kept me informed about progress with .the bar tab. Staff – Lee, Gary and chef Paddy were friendly and helpful and service was switched on but unobtrusive. The boat is clean and well furnished with plenty of outside deck space. I really can’t fault any aspect – we all had a great day and the cost was vert reasonable.”

Work party Thames River cruise

“We had our annual works party on the King Edward last night and it was great fun! Casino tables, DJ, BBQ buffet, bubbles, beer and lovely views from the split level boat for 4 hours on a nice summers evening! Best office party in a long, long time. Thanks King Cruises! This is something my husband wants to do for his 40th Birthday in 3 years time so I will remember this company and get in contact in a couple of years!”

Customer From Croydon

Absolutely brilliant!

“I cannot thank Jake, Lee and all the staff enough for making my mother-in-laws 80th birthday so wonderful. They really went out of their way to make it special for us all – they decorated the boat beautifully, they were so accommodating in setting it up in the just the way that we wanted, the food was great, waiters really friendly and helpful, and they found us an excellent entertainer. And the King Edward is fabulous – light and airy with great views from inside, and enough outside space to make the most of the sunshine that we were lucky to get. We couldn’t fault anything, it was all brilliant. My mother-in-law was quite overwhelmed (it was a surprise party for her). Thank you so much – it was a night to remember”

Customer From Cambridge

Perfect venue for my sister's 30th birthday party!

“We booked the King Edward for a 4 hour boat cruise on a Saturday evening to celebrate my sister’s 30th birthday. It was a fantastic venue, and the team went above and beyond to make the event a success. Thank you!”


Great Birthday Event

“I booked the King Edward for my 40th and it was an excellent evening. Jake, Lee and the team were brilliant and very accommodating both in the lead up to the event and the day itself. The setting was just what I wanted and sailing up and down the Thames gave all my guests an opportunity to take in the sounds and sights of London near Christmas. Everyone had a great time with good music and good food. Would love to have a reason to book another trip in the future!”

The Best Christmas Party Ever!

“We went out on the King Edwards for your Christmas party yesterday evening and what a night it was!

Lee, Jake and the crew were incredible – welcoming, helpful and made our night one to remember.

With 70 staff on board the boat had ample space for us to wander between the two decks and the two outdoor spaces.

I can’t express enough how helpful Lee and the team are – any question or worries they put my mind at ease – nothing was too much trouble.

I would book the King Edward without any hesitation – the best Christmas Party Ever!”

50th Birthday on the King Edward

“Thank you very much for an amazing 5 hour Trip. I can’t imagine a nicer place to celebrate my 50th Birthday. The Barbecue and the Drinks were delicious. Everybody loved it and my crowd still is talking about the experience. Jake, you have a fantastic crew.”

Customer From Switzerland

Our wedding event was excellent

“We had a fantastic wedding event! the excellent staff of King Cruise’s were excellent on the day of the wedding and also leading up to the great day.
They are all professional and friendly and most of all very good communication, you always know where you stand and they go out of there way to make the event special
I highly recommend King Cruises and Jake, Paddy, Lee, Gary and the whole team.

Perfect graduation boat party!

“We booked the King Edward with King Cruises for a Graduation after-party. From the day I requested a quote many months ago, through to the evening itself, customer service from Jake and Lee has been completely unparalleled. Jake worked closely with me to find the best package for our budget, which was admittedly quite tight as we are a charity, but you never would have noticed as the boat, food and decorations were all superb and made our graduates feel very special. Our finance team made a few blunders and the King Cruises team were so understanding and did everything possible to set us at ease. We went for the BBQ buffet which was delicious and they provided some fantastic vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options – far more choices than you might expect even in a restaurant. The graduates got to DJ for themselves through the bluetooth PA system using their phones, which they loved. We booked an additional pier stop and some bottles of Prosecco with just days to go before the event and Jake was fantastic at meeting all of our requirements at the last minute and communication was fab. All in all I cannot recommend King Cruises enough – they genuinely care about their customers and I have no doubt that anyone booking with them will have an event as flawless as ours. Thank you so much guys!!!”

Annual Company Boat Trip

“We have hosted our Annual company Boat trip with King Cruises a few times now and have always had a great experience with really positive feedback from our guests. Jake and Lee are extremely helpful in the lead up to the event and on the night where they can make the event tailored to your requirements. Its a fabulous trip with great views of London. The food they provide (We have the buffet BBQ) is delicious and we also have a DJ and the music was great. A fun, relaxed, enjoyable event! We will be booking again next year.”


Our company's 3rd Anniversary Party!

“We had a fantastic 3rd Anniversary party aboard of one of the cruises of King Cruises. We hire the whole boat for a 3 hour evening cruise and we were pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. Everything was perfect. A great service, lovely staff and amazing views of London.The boat is very spacious and we never felt cramped. It is perfect for 150 people. Jake handled all of my booking and made it all very easy. I have had great feedback from all the guests so overall, excellent! it couldn’t be better.”


Great Private Boat Tours!

“We have been using King Cruises for private boat hire for the past few years and really love Gary, Lee and Jake. They are experts at shuttling 60+ students down the Thames, and the commentary from Gary is much appreciated! Thanks again!”

Family party

Jake and the team were outstanding in ensuring all went to plan. Everything was taken care of with attention to detail. I can recommend King Cruises highly.

King Cruises for Corporate Summer Event- Excellent!

“In July this year I booked my corporate summer event with King Cruises.
I had such an easy and pleasant experience booking everything with the guys- they are so lovely and accommodating! On the day the boat looked beautiful (it had been fully decorated before boarding) and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was a family event so there were young children and everyone had a great time- the boat was very safe and all risk assessments were done by the guys on the boat.
We had a BBQ on the boat and the food was gorgeous with plenty to go around. Drinks at the bar were also so reasonably priced, especially for central London.
Everyone had such good feedback about this venue after the event.
I highly recommend this venue for any type of party or event- it’s such a great way to see London and the venue owners are so friendly.”

Customer From London

A farewell to remember!!

“We booked Kings Cruises for a farewell and we could not have asked for a better evening! Jake and the crew were amazing, the boat was clean, food was fabulous and everything was so well organised…. And best of all… It was easy! Jake took the stress out of planning such an event, and was happy to “adapt to suit the budget”!

It was a night to remember, nearly 3 months on and we are all still talking about it!

Thank you Jake…. Thank you King Cruises!!!”


Hen Do on the Thames!

“It was so much fun, Jake and his crew made the occasion so much fun for all the guests. It was such a special day – I would do it again and again AND AGAIN!”

Most memorable night of my life celebrating my 50th Birthday

“I was looking to do something different for my 50th Birthday. I researched doing a boat party and after several attempts of trying to arrange, I was so lucky to have found the King Edward cruises. They were exceptionally organised, extremely helpful, willing, and communicated with me regularly about my party. The night was exceptional and thoroughly successful. The crew were amazing from start to finish. We had a barbeque on board cooked by the chef Paddy. Jake, Lee and the Captain were amazing. The crew even had music downloaded on their equipment in the event of any mishaps. If you want to remember something of a lifetime, I would strongly recommend hiring the Kind Edward Cruise. Everybody that attended my party is still talking about it and how much fun it was and an amazing way to see all the sights of London. Well done crew and thanks from my heart for everything, you made my birthday so special.”

Customer From London


“We organised a surprise hen do for my best friend. We wanted to do something really special but that was a little bit different and that wouldn’t break the bank. Using King Cruises was the best idea we ever had. The guys were so so so so so so so so so helpful through out the whole organisation of the party and made sure the Hen do was exactly what we wanted! I cannot explain how much fun we had on the boat, it is the perfect size for a really good party and the guys made sure everyone was having a great time! Every request we had leading up the party, the guys made sure it could happen!! Crusing down the thames is so special and everyone of the guests said it was the best hen do they had ever been to!. The guys even helped us with the complicated task of smuggling a surprise stripper on board. I cannot thank them enough for helping make my best friend so happy!!!!!”

Great value office social on the Thames!

“I approached King Cruises in search of a bespoke Thames river cruise for our office summer social. Our boat the King Edward was perfect for 50 of us to roam around outside and in and on a day where the weather was dicey the spacious vessel was appreciated. The bar and buffet food were good value and we were able to play our own music. Friendly and helpful crew – Jake in particular was fantastic at coping with my daily phone calls as our itinerary evolved and was lovely to meet him on the day.”

Sarah S

Great Venue & Great Crew!

“I booked King Cruises for a significant Birthday! I have always wanted a River Boat Party, but wasn’t sure how to go about sorting it all out … I needn’t have worried, as Jake was so supportive & helpful throughout the whole planning process.

When the big day itself came along, it was raining, but that didn’t dampen everyone’s spirits, on the contrary, Jazz the DJ (who was recommended by Jake) played an excellent set and had everyone up on their feet dancing the night away! Those who didn’t want to dance, were able to go outside and enjoy the London night views (as thankfully it didn’t rain all night)! Everyone had a great time and throughout, Jake & the rest of the crew were cheerful & friendly.

I would have no hesitation in recommending King Cruises as a fantastic venue to hold a party!”

Customer from Croydon

Just Brilliant!

“King Cruises helped us lay on an incredible hen party for our sister! We couldn’t have asked for a friendlier or a more helpful crew. Nothing was too much trouble, and we were able to organise a completely bespoke event.

Everything was done to a very high standard – the food was tasty and fresh, the boat was done up immaculately and the DJ was great.

It was a really unique way to celebrate, with zero hassle and all for a very good price.

Just a lovely bunch of people and a great setup – I really can’t praise them enough. Thank you!”
