New Year’s Eve
All pictures are for illustration purposes only and do not necessarily represent the event. Firework display is subject to final confirmation by the Mayor of London. Due to changing tides, river traffic and weather conditions, we are unable to confirm or guarantee the exact position the vessel will moor at to take in the views of the Fireworks display at Midnight. The crew will endeavour to secure the best position possible for viewing of the display, however please respect that the Captain’s decision is final. Menus are subject to change. Please notify us if you, or someone in your party will require assistance accessing NYE boats. We will be able to advise which boats are wheelchair friendly.
